The cryptocurrency market underwent a correction driving the collective market cap to face a major retracement all the way back to $370 billion. After a short-lived tryst above the $12k-mark, Bitcoin was back below the crucial key level. Following suit were several major altcoins such as XRP, bitcoin SV( BSV )& chainlink that recorded minor falls as a result.
Despite pushing back and reclaiming the third spot in the cryptocurrency ladder, XRP has so far failed to post impressive gains. The development activity in the XRP network has been decreasing since the beginning of the year.
