The price of Ripple has recently skyrocketed. Although the crypto market is very volatile, most drastic jumps in price usually have a reason. One of the possible reasons for such an increase for Ripple might be a tweet published by Wired, a company specializing in crypto wallets pegged to debit cards.
We're working on it!

Wired has announced the release of the cards which will make it possible to buy and convert certain cryptocurrencies into USD. The list of coins includes XRP. Afterwards, a user asked whether these coins could be used on Apple Pay, and Wired provided a confirmation.
Although such news cannot provide a long-term price growth for Ripple, it still boosted the popularity of this token.
