The Ripple price (XRP/USD) has struggled in a rocky Tuesday session that has seen the third-largest cryptocurrency dropping below $0.80.
The digital currency dropped to as low as $0.787 yesterday, as it experienced a sharp decline in the latter part of the session. While the digital coin managed to rise above the $0.80 mark at the end of the session, it did not build enough positive momentum to continue its advance on Tuesday.

At the time of writing, the Ripple price was hovering around $0.78, according to data from cryptocurrency tracker Coinmarketcap. In addition, the market activity has remained subdued, with around $350 million worth of XRP tokens having been traded over the past 24 hours.
