Cryptocurrency ripple fell Tuesday on the Bitstamp exchange, adding to sharp losses from the previous day.
The price of the digital currency dropped 12.8 percent and was at $2.12 as of 4:56 p.m. ET.
Ripple shed more than 8 percent Monday as prices of several digital currencies also declined. Bitcoin briefly dropped more than 10 percent before finishing the day down about 2 percent. Litecoin also fell Monday.
Coinmarketcap.com, an industry site, showed ripple down more than 30 percent at one point on Monday. The sharp move lower appeared to be a reflection of the site excluding certain prices from Korean exchanges. Other sites and exchanges showed ripple down more than 10 percent at the time.
Ripple's price gain last year left major cryptocurrencies like bitcoin in the dust. In 2017, ripple soared 35,000 percent, while bitcoin rose 1,500 percent.
However, some experts say the digital currency, which is also called XRP, may have run ahead of itself. "Definitely the ripple ecosystem is definitely going to have to get a lot , " Michael Graham, an analyst at Canaccord Genuity, said last week. But he also said "the use case for XRP is quite clear. That sets it apart from other crypto assets."
Ripple is officially the name of a San Francisco company that is developing a payments network for financial institutions. XRP is the name of the coin that Ripple participants can use for transactions. The company has also said that more than 100 financial institutions are using its network in some capacity.
