Crypto movers and shakers

Ripple’s XRP coin has dropped 7% in value in 24 hours.

After climbing 17% to $1.68 in 24 hours at this time (7am) yesterday, it fell back to $1.56 on Friday morning with a market cap of more than $71 billion.

Dogecoin fell 5% in 24 hours, making it a 16% drop in 48 hours having rocketed an astonishing 57% in the previous 24 hours.

Originally created as a joke – and based on a meme – DOGE has benefited from the support of SpaceX and Tesla entrepreneur Elon Musk, who is set to host Saturday Night Live.
