SEC v. Ripple Case Propels Interests in XRP

It is not surprising that XRP secured the third position in both rankings, given the widespread popularity of the coin. XRP has been a major topic of discussion since the SEC sued Ripple in December 2020.

The regulator alleged that Ripple sold the coin to investors as an unregistered security. However, the court overseeing the case ruled otherwise, finding that Ripple did not violate securities law by selling XRP on digital exchanges.

Although the ruling was issued in July, the lawsuit has continued to linger as the SEC seeks an appellate review on the areas of the case it lost.

Both the SEC and Ripple have filed the necessary motions as they await the court’s verdict on the matter.

Meanwhile, XRP is ranked as the fifth largest cryptocurrency, with a market cap of $26.41 billion. At press time, XRP is up 3.4% over the past 24 hours to $0.497, according to CoinGecko data.
