Ripple scores major win against SEC in XRP case
The whole crypto industry is celebrating the partial win of Ripple in the XRP lawsuit against the SEC, which has been going on since late December 2020. Judge Analisa Torres announced that institutional sales of XRP made by Ripple are securities. They brought Ripple Labs $728 million. However, programmatic and other XRP sales are not deemed as securities. These amounted to a total of $1.366 billion for Ripple.
Still, the XRP price first surged by 16% on Thursday on the back of the news and now, as several major exchanges are relisting the token — Bitstamp, Coinbase — the price has soared above the 63% level. XRP is now changing hands at $0.7705, according to data provided by CoinMarketCap. The coin has added more than $4 billion to its market capitalization value on that price surge.
This is an important win not only for Ripple but for the whole crypto space, as many crypto fans and influencers believe on Crypto Twitter.
Recently, the U.S. securities regulator has been trying, as many believe, to gain control over the crypto industry within the U.S., mainly by putting legal pressure on crypto exchanges like Gemini and Kraken. In the most recent development on this theme, the SEC sued Binance and Coinbase, claiming that they have violated U.S. securities laws and trading altcoins as unregistered securities.
