The token is rallying despite numerous bad news that keep coming for XRP and the lack of good news.

In the meantime, BTC smashed USD 39,000 today. It trades at USD 39,197 and is up by 12% in a day and 37% in a week. The price more than doubled in a month and rallied by 363% in a year.

Also, the total market capitalization now stands above USD 1 trillion. Bitcoin dominance, or the percentage of the total market capitalization, is around 68%.

As reported, as bitcoin's latest surge continues to convert ranks of legacy finance institutions into crypto-enthusiasts, legendary investor Bill Miller predicts that "the current relative trickle into bitcoin" could become "a torrent."

Also, Revolut said it has attracted 300,000 new crypto customers over the last 30 days, while around 100,000 of those signups came since the beginning of 2021, Business Insider reported. At the same time, crypto trading startup Luno said that it recently surpassed 6 million customers and has seen a surge in activity in recent days, the report added.
