What are the key factors driving this decline? Since becoming the largest altcoin by market cap, XRP’s performance has been closely tied to the market leader Bitcoin. Bitcoin has also been trading around a key level at $4000 but has stayed below. With the price of the market leader staying below this key level, it increases the likelihood that the next significant movement in Bitcoin will be to the downside.

XRP’s performance is likely reflecting this and will also be more likely to move to the downside given Bitcoin’s recent price action. If XRP drops, support will be expected to come into play from around $0.30 to $0.315.
