The cryptocurrency market is mostly in the green today, as it’s currently nearing its month-long high. Today, we’re looking at three coins that continue to surge: Ripple(XRP), Tron(TRX), and VeChain.
All but five coins on the top 100 are seeing losses this morning, which is great news. There isn’t any major breaking news in the cryptocurrency space today, which is not necessarily a bad thing.
As you can see, XRP has been on a bit of a bull run this past week. A week ago, Santander announced their launch of Santander One Pay FX. This is the first app that uses Ripple technology for global payments.

Since then, XRP has been on a steady incline. As more and more businesses adopt Ripple’s cross-border blockchain technology, the more valuable XRP becomes. It seems major banks around the globe have been taking notice and getting on board with Ripple and Stellar’s tech – I feel this is just the beginning.
At press time, XRP is trading at $0.734 a coin, up 7.74%, in 24 hours.
A few days ago, the Tron Foundation announced the details of their programming contest. The contest’s total prize pool is $1 million worth of TRX, and they’ve started taking applications already. The Tron main net is exactly six weeks away, and it’s full steam ahead for the team.
If you’ve considered adding TRX to your portfolio, now’s the time but this is definitely a long hold, as the team’s full project is years from completion.
Stay tuned for my interview with Justin Sun tomorrow. At press time, TRX is trading at $0.0498 a coin, up 9.86%, in 24 hours.

The latest medium post update from VeChain’s CEO, Sunny Lu, and has since caused a spike in VeChain’s price.
It seems long-time VeChain enthusiasts have gained some confidence in the project and have bought up more VEN.
At press time, VEN is trading at $3.68 a coin, up 7.76%.
