XRP continues its bull ride; Decred and Dogecoin follow suit

Share this article

Bitcoin recovered really quickly from ‘Black Thursday,’ and so did some of the altcoins. The beginning of April saw many of these altcoins go on a bull run, and surprisingly, the fluctuations in the crude oil markets don’t seem to have affected them. Altcoins like XRP, Decred, and Dogecoin have all been on a bull ride since April, and as per analysis, they might continue on this bull ride for a few more days now.

These alts were helped by Bitcoin, the world’s largest cryptocurrency, doing well, with the king coin trading at a price of $7,530, at the time of writing.
