The market sentiment pushed the cryptocurrency to break the resistance and pushed its value to $0.37, with a market cap of $15.53 billion.

Another reason speculated for this sudden surge is exchange-traded products [ETPs] tied to the prices of XRP going live on the Nordic Growth Market, which is a subsidiary of the Borse Stuttgart exchange. The announcement that two ETPs for XRP would be available for investors based in the European Union, was made on Thursday.
