  • Ripple’s XRP spiked to $0.3450 before retreating to $0.33 amid technical correction from an overbought territory. 
  • Other altcoins demonstrated similar momentum gaining from 5% to 13%. 


"Looks like #AprilFoolsDay put everyone in a good mood. This move has bee building for a while. Taking out the key level at $4,200 was critical. The rest is history,” Mati Greenspan from eToro says. commenting on the move.
