The XRP/USD coin pair managed to extend its bullish early-day rally, remaining well bid above the $0.73500 level. The XRP/USD Coin was trading at $0.73626 on Wednesday, at the time of writing, which was up by 15.62% on the day.
This upward move pushed Ripple’s market cap up to $30.91313B, or 2.01% of the total cryptocurrency market cap. The highest market cap so far for XRP was $83.44071B. The XRP/USD has traded in a range from $0.63123 to $0.74191 in the previous twenty-four hours. Ripple has gained 22.37% over the past seven days.
Conversely, the bullish bias surrounding the US dollar turned out to be one of the key factors that kept a lid on any extra gains in the XRP/USD coin pair. On the USD front, the broad-based US dollar managed to extend its upward rally of the previous session, taking some further bids on Wednesday, as the downbeat market sentiment tends to underpin the safe-haven US dollar. The upticks in the US dollar limited the XRP/USD price gains.
