With Malta taking some deep interest in blockchain and cryptocurrencies, it is very evident that Ripple, which is already the top exchange all across the globe, will be able to do trading in XRP with ease in the country.
Ripple had the best quarterly report
Ripple had the best quarter ever in its Q2 in terms of customers signed and sold $73.53 million XRP amidst low volatility. In Q2 2018, the company sold $56.66 million XRP programmatically, which represented 0.125 percent, or 12.5 basis points of the total XRP volume traded globally in the second quarter.
According to the Q2 report, the XRP price continued to have a dip with those of other digital assets, underscoring XRP’s independence from Ripple.
