According to Ran NeuNer, crypto market volumes on the Christmas holiday also indicate the emerging technology’s wider international appeal.

This correction in the stock markets should bode well for BTC. At some stage fund managers look for creative places to get returns outside of equities,bonds & Gold which has had little response. Given the massive correction we had it could make BTC look cheap & attractive to them

Ripple and XRP
Two more cryptocurrency exchanges have followed Binance by adding XRP as a base asset. Australia’s BTCEXA and India’s CoinDCX both say they are expanding the number of coins paired with XRP.
We are pleased to announce that XRP has been listed as a base pair on BTCEXA! The trading pairs available at launch are XLM/XRP & ADA/XRP.
