Ripple v. SEC Decision Spikes Whale Interest in XRP
The transactions show a rise in cryptocurrency investors’ interest in XRP. The sixth-largest cryptocurrency has attracted new attention as the Ripple v. SEC lawsuit nears its conclusion.
Brad Garlinhouse, the CEO of Ripple, and many other people anticipate that the case will be settled in the first half of 2023. Judge Analisa Torres has received a complete briefing on the case.
Judge Torres is being petitioned for a favorable decision by Ripple and the SEC. The price of XRP will soar dramatically if she rules in Ripple’s favor. However, a victory for the SEC might significantly lower the crypto asset’s price. However, with no apparent concern, whales continue to shift hundreds of millions of XRP daily.
