The third-largest digital currency on the market experienced some rocky trading on Monday, with its price hovering around the $0.31 mark for the better part of the session.

Like some of its chief crypto rivals, including Bitcoin (BTC) and Litecoin (LTC), XRP had a poor start to today’s session, with its price tumbling to a one-week low of $0.307.

However, the coin lost its momentum in the afternoon and started experiencing price swings again. At the time of writing, the Ripple price was hovering around $0.31.
At the same time, Ripple has seen a drop in terms of trading volume. Recent market data shows that some $556.5 million worth of XRP tokens have changed hands in the past 24 hours. This is significantly below the $672-million daily trading volume that was generated during the Monday session.
BCEX has been the most popular destination for Ripple trading in the past 24 hours, having captured nearly 14% of all XRP trades over that period.
