Ripple’s week has been a rollercoaster one in price. Even as the total growth percentage for the coin is in the red, with a decline of 8.3% over the week, the coin saw a slight uptick in price. Investors are used to this, however, as the last week saw a series of drops and gains in quick succession.

It started this week $0.73 on May 15th, with a quick drop to $0.67 the very next day on May 16th. It gained again, with a growth to $0.71 on May 17th. Another rollercoaster bend came on May 18th, with a drop to $0.6. It brushed the $0.70 limit on May 21st, before dropping to its current value of $0.67.
