Ripple News: Coins are back in the green today! This is good news, considering numerous coins started the week off slow — despite all that was happening over in New York. This means Ripple (XRP) is back up too.
So, the coin is up, but is there Ripple news to go with it? Let’s see what we can find out. First, however, let’s look at the Ripple price chart.
Ripple (XRP) Daily Chart
Ripple (XRP) is currently selling for $0.698521. This puts XRP up 1.41% in the past twenty-four hours.

There are a few pieces of Ripple news that surfaced late yesterday, only reaching the masses this morning, but nothing surpasses the Ripple news announced at the start of the week, at Consensus 2018. We’ll get to that, though.
Yesterday, it was reported that the second biggest stock exchange in Germany launched crypto trading. Specifically, the Stuttgart Stock Exchange will begin offering the following virtual currencies: Ripple (XRP), Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), and Litecoin (LTC).

Further, yesterday, American entrepreneur Tiffany Hayden, who has been very vocal on social media while at NYC Blockchain Week, tweeted that she got to visit the new NYC Ripple office. This is one of the first looks at the new office.
I was able to peek at the new @Ripple office in NYC. It looks very similar to the SF office they just moved from. It’s exciting to see how quickly they’re expanding! $XRP #xrpthestandard pic.twitter.com/XM8ZFR3zuu

Ripple at Consensus 2018
At Consensus 2018, the Ripple team partied, connected with its community, and presented various bits of Ripple news. Most notably, Ripple announced its Xpring project. It also announced that three companies would be testing payments with Ripple’s xCurrent.
On Tuesday night, Ripple hosted its XRP Community Night. Despite some controversy leading up to the invite-only event, the night went well. Snoop Dogg performed, and XRP concertgoers danced the night away, champagne in hand.
