Bitcoin has reached as high as $8,300 but has now fallen back to $7,800 in choppy trading today.
The latest market-moving news out of New York Blockchain Week was from Coinbase. It will now be offering XRP to its customers in New York.
The rest of America and its customers in Europe will be wondering when it’s their turn.
XRP (XRP) is now available to Coinbase users who are New York residents. New Yorkers can now log in to buy, sell, convert, send, receive, or store XRP on https://t.co/bCG11KMQ6s or using our iOS and Android apps.https://t.co/5VE1WklrWo pic.twitter.com/Zp5odgaoHs

XRP rose as much as 30% to hit $0.10168 but has come off the heat a little, currently trading at $0.404, up 24%.
Ripple’s XRP token has been among the worst performers at the top of the market cap table.
Regulatory doubts on whether it is a utility or a security continue to plague sentiment and no amount of great dealmaking in the industry has been able to shift the price.
