It's been a big week for data fans. Leading the charge is Ripple's 77 percent surge in value in light of news that xRapid–a money-transfer service for businesses operating across borders-will be launching in one month.
As a result, the entire crypto market is on the rise from a market cap of $200 billion seven days ago, to just shy of $230 billion today. It's put nearly all the top 50 cryptocurrencies into the green-except Chainlink, down 4 percent.
Crypto exchanges, meanwhile had a less fruitful seven days. While Coinsbank enjoyed a 1,500 percent-surge in trading volume thanks to its sponsoring of a blockchain cruise round the Med, three crypto exchanges were put under the spotlight by the New York Attorney General. Binance, Kraken and Gate.io were referred to the Department of Financial Services for “potential violations".
If that was too much, we've put it all in a handy infographic for your visual pleasure.
