In the latest downturn for altcoins, Ripple’s XRP and Stellar (XLM) both remained in the green in the past day.

The recent small rise in prices follows bullish news from both projects. In Ripple’s case, the support came from what appears to be a settlement with R3 after a long-standing debate on the right of R3 to buy XRP at a lower price. A large transaction was noted by the crypto community, possibly signifying such a settlement:
