As for now, the third-largest cryptocurrency is gaining a brief surge in its daily market capitalization. The token is currently up with 0.47 percent within the past 24 Hrs as it trades at the value of $0.27 against USD. Moreover, the coin’s market capitalization is also showing a quick rise and sits with $12,055,249,931 on October 9, 2019.
Besides, the Binance exchange announced to hit its eighth phase of the lending product wherein the platform offers 14-days fixed-term lending products. Notably, the exchange included XRP in its program among the set of other cryptocurrencies such as Binance Coin (BNB), Binance USD (BUSD), Bitcoin (BTC), EOS, Ether (ETH), Ethereum Classic (ETC), Tether (USDT) and Chainlink (LINK).
It’s worth noting that the lending product was initially rolled out with only three digital assets, BNB, ETC, and USDT, and in Sept this year, the platform added privacy-focused cryptocurrencies, including Monero (XMR), Zcash (ZEC) and Dash (DASH).
More so, the largest payment platform BitPay has also confirmed that it will launch the support for XRP by the end of this year – which will enable the worldwide merchants to accept XRP besides limited sets of cryptocurrencies.
