The price of XRP increased by nearly 30% from the previous month, and the average daily trading volume increased by more than 175%.
The digital currency market performed well in the second quarter of this year, with a total market capitalization of 122.86% higher than the first quarter, while XRP prices also rose by 28.2% in the second quarter.
According to CryptoCompare's Top Tier (CCTT) benchmark, XRP's average daily trading volume ($429 million) in the second quarter increased significantly by 175% from the first quarter ($156 million).
However, Coinmarketcap shows that the average daily trading volume of XRP is 1.74 billion US dollars. Interestingly, Ripple said that in order to avoid the exaggeration of market trading volume, Ripple will be in the future when many exchanges and project parties misrepresent the false transaction volume. Use CryptoCompare as a basic indicator to measure XRP market trading volume.
In addition, XRP's (average return per share) volatility for the quarter was 5.01%, a slight increase from the volatility of the first quarter. The correlation between XRP and BTC has decreased compared with the first quarter, but the correlation between the two is still high.
In the second quarter, XRP launched 12 new exchanges. As of now, XRP has been launched on more than 130 exchanges around the world.
XRP sales totaled 250 million US dollars, and institutional sales increased by nearly 73%
In the second quarter of this year, Ripple's Institutional Direct Sales (OTC) sales were $106 million, an increase of nearly 73% from the first quarter ($61.13 million), directly driving sales growth this quarter. In 2017, when XRP/USD liquidity was limited, Ripple subsidiary XRP II began to meet institutional needs through over-the-counter XRP.
But Rippl's programmatic sales still dominate, with sales of $140 million.
Ripple's total sales in the second quarter reached $250 million, a significant increase from the $169 million in the first quarter.

The remaining 900 million XRPs are being used in various ways to develop XRP applications, including the Xpring program and RippleNet partners (such as MoneyGram).
From Q1 to Q2, the Ripple Group's Xrapid transaction volume increased by 170%, and Xrapid's number of partners increased by 30%. As more partners and customers come online, Ripple's trading volume is still rising.
