It’s Friday, which means it’s time to reflect on all that went on this week. What a week it was, too! Especially for Ripple (XRP). The crypto space saw some major Ripple news surface this week, and it’s important to review it. Why? So we’re in the loop when Monday rolls around. 

First, however, let’s look at how Ripple (XRP) is doing today.

This is not the first time Ripple (XRP) has found itself in the red this week.

Ripple (XRP) Price Throughout the Week 

Ripple (XRP) has been down for the majority of the week, with the exception of yesterday, and the 14th. It’s unlikely this is because of the Ripple news that surfaced during the week because it’s all been positive and innovative. Chances are it’s because of the ongoing crypto market decline. 

On Monday, the first bit of Ripple news surfaced, causing the coin to move into the green. The altcoin was up 3.11% at one point during the day. 

On Tuesday, and Wednesday, Ripple (XRP) was in the red. As for yesterday, Ripple found its way back to the green, up 1.41% at one point during the day.

Mentioned briefly, there’s been quite a bit of Ripple news surface this week. Some of it was disclosed at Consensus 2018 and NYC Blockchain Week.


To start the week off, we had some Ripple news that took the market by storm. On Monday, Ripple disclosed its new project, called Xpring. 

Excited to announce Xpring, a new initiative that supports businesses growing on the XRP Ledger, and initial investments in @SB_Projects, @blockchaincap, @Coil_ and @omni. Together, we will grow the #InternetofValue!

There was no new Ripple news on Thursday. However, there was a tweet that was posted late Wednesday that didn’t really reach the masses until Thursday morning. The tweet showed one of the first looks at the NYC Ripple office.

I was able to peek at the new @Ripple office in NYC. It looks very similar to the SF office they just moved from. It’s exciting to see how quickly they’re expanding! $XRP #xrpthestandard
