Monero’s price has risen by more than 12% in the last 24 hours, bringing the growth in the last seven days to more than 25%. XMR is trading at $414 at the time of writing. The market capitalization of Monero has grown to over $7 bln and is now the 21st largest digital currency in the world.
Monero’s price climbed to a three-year high mainly due to the recent network update and so-called atomic swaps between XMR and BTC. In addition, the recent launch of the Monero-based Haveno decentralized exchange has contributed to the rise in the price of XMR.
