Ripple scores a legal victory against the SEC

As covered by U.Today earlier, the federal court had ruled that the U.S. securities regulator has to satisfy the demand of Ripple's lawyers to produce documents regarding Bitcoin and Ethereum to be looked at further.

Those documents show the basis for considering the two biggest cryptocurrencies non-security assets by the SEC, unlike Ripple-affiliated XRP.

Prior to that, Ripple also managed to reach a consensus with the SEC about submitting partly redacted documents that contain information regarding Ripple's finances and some of its institutional investors.

XRP steps back to fifth place

After both of these pieces of news, earlier this week, XRP managed to retake its fourth spot on CoinMarketCap and hit a high above $1.

As of press time, XRP is sitting in fifth place (Tether's USDT occupies the fourth position) and is changing hands at $0.99.
