Ripple is trading around the $1.15 area , XRP should have performed better given its development this year. However, The main reason why its doing bad is its prolonged legal battle with the SEC, which caused a lack in media coverage for all his projects development.

Fundamental point of view :
Since the launch of XRP, Ripple has been an innovative company. The project has always looked for ways to stay ahead of every competition. For example, XRP partnered with MoneyGram allowing MoneyGram to use Ripple’s solution for decision-making.
This year, Ripple has been on several partnerships improving its Asian dominance, especially the Japanese remittance deal. In addition, Ripple plans to add a smart contract feature to XRPL.
Smart contracts are essential for blockchains and their addition to the XRP Ledger is a step in the right direction for the company. The company has also revealed plans to go public after the conclusion of the lawsuit with the SEC. According to Dailycoin.
