Ripple is one of the standouts in an otherwise clogged field of cryptocurrencies that include the likes of Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Dash and Ethereum, just to name a few. It is widely considered the second-largest cryptocurrency by value.  

Released in 2012, Ripple is a real-time gross settlement system (RTGS), currency exchange and remittance network by Ripple. Also called the Ripple Transaction Protocol (RTXP) or Ripple protocol, it is built upon a distributed open source Internet protocol, consensus ledger and native cryptocurrency called XRP (ripples).

It hit an all-time high above $2.90 on Wednesday.  It marks a more than 45,700 percent rally in one year, according to CoinMarketCap.

CNN notes that the relatively obscure cryptocurrency, also known as XRP, has a market cap of more than $100 billion, according to Coinmarketcap.

In early December, it was trading at just 25 cents. Even with the spike, ripple is worth considerably less than bitcoin. After a tumultuous December, is bitcoin was trading around $15,000 late Tuesday with a market cap of more than $250 billion.
