XRP lost close to $10 billion since spike, market down $14 billion in 24 hours

After days of pumping, Ripple's XRP token is on its way down on Tuesday again, with over $4.5 billion of the market cap of XRP gone up in smoke in the last 24 hours.

The rally of Ripple's token ended on Friday, when the price hit $0,69 and the market cap reached $27.5 billion. Since that spike, XRP lost close to $10 billion. At the time of writing XRP is worth $0,45, and has a market cap of $17.6 billion.

It still has gained significantly in a week's time. Seven days ago XRP was still valued at $0,27, with a market cap of close to $11 billion.

The surge of XRP was the result of Ripple stating that their new product xRapid will go live 'in the next month or so'.
