Ripple v. SEC lawsuit about to sunset, crypto lawyer says it portends well for XRP
Yesterday, Bill Morgan, crypto lawyer and well-known XRP supporter, took to Twitter to post a photo of a sunset he had taken. After looking at it later in the day, Morgan wrote, he saw a sign behind the photo — the sun is setting on the Ripple-SEC case, and in his opinion, it could be "a good portent for XRP." The lawyer then added that he later found out the SEC filed a lawsuit against Binance, adding that the Hinman emails will soon be released. "Lucky I'm not superstitious," Morgan concluded.

Morgan agreed, commenting on his post: "It is indeed another step in the SEC's attack on the industry and way past time to unite."
