SEC staff do not expect to win the case

As reported by U.Today at the start of March, SEC Commissioner Hester Peirce believes that some of the staff of the agency do not believe the SEC can achieve the result they intended when they started the case against Ripple Labs in December 2019.

However, even with these rumors, the founder of CryptoLaw, John Deaton, stated that he does not expect the case to be settled in March.

XRP remains attractive for investors

Still, XRP remains attractive for investors as the coin seems to remain at the $0.8 level without going down, sometimes printing small rises.

At the time of writing, XRP is trading at $0.8878, showing a price increase by 6.50% over the past 24 hours.
