The XRP ruling has fueled a very bullish and emphatic reaction from the community, as it is accompanied by massive buy-ups, a trend that pushed the price of the asset to its highest level in the past year. While XRP is still one of the most profitable altcoins around, some whale activity has suggested a potential sell-off might be incoming.

More upside for XRP?
The victory secured by XRP has far-reaching implications that go beyond the asset itself. While the case is not completely over, there are a number of positive conclusions that being drawn by Ripple Labs executives, experts and observers in the broader crypto ecosystem.
One such conclusion is that it is now glaring that XRP is not a security, and irrespective of the volatility headwinds that lie ahead, more firms now have the regulatory clarity to integrate the coin into their business operations across the board.
