In an interesting development, data obtained from crypto market tracker CoinMarketCap, shows that the XRP token from Ripple has surpassed that of Binance’s BUSD stablecoin; to clinch the sixth spot in terms of market capitalization among 22,000 odd cryptocurrencies.
Ripple’s XRP Vs. Binance’s BUSD
While Ripple has lately been in the headlines for its ongoing legal battle with the Securities & Exchange Commission (SEC), massive whale activity has also been tracked for the particular altcoin. In particular, on December 23, there was a record high in the number of XRP whales and shark addresses that held between 1,000,000 to 10,000,000 tokens. Earlier, crypto analysis platform Santiment, reported that the total had reached an astounding 1,617 unique addresses.

Currently, in third place, is another stablecoin project USDT with a market capitalization of $66 billion.

At the time of writing, the current market capitalizations of XRP and BUSD are around $18 billion and $17.3 billion respectively. XRP leads by barely a slim margin of $700 million as it trades at $0.358, with a 3.5% gain in the last seven days as per recent data.
