This development was marked by an IMF report that addressed digital currencies, highlighting their usefulness in improving financial inclusion and connectivity among Pacific Island countries.

The IMF’s Mention of Ripple and XRP

As ETHNews previously reported, the IMF paper not only recognized the importance of digital currencies but also mentioned Ripple and XRP. It highlighted the use of the R3 XRP blockchain and discussed the collaboration with Palau to develop a stable sovereign currency, evidencing Ripple’s global reach in developing core and stable digital currencies.

Following reports from ETHNews, Bitcoin also posted a remarkable 4.74% gain on the same day, thanks to fund inflows into the BTC ETF market , approaching $60,000. This bullish environment benefits assets like XRP, indicating a period of potential gains for investors.

SEC vs. Ripple and the Consequences for XRP

The legal battle between the SEC and Ripple has captured the industry’s attention, especially after the end of the remedy discovery phase on February 20. With the parties preparing their arguments on sanctions, the possibility of an SEC appeal against the decision on XRP sales becomes more latent.

According to a previous ETHNews report, the OIG’s investigation into conflicts of interest at the SEC could significantly impact the case against Ripple. The investigation focuses on the actions of former SEC Director William Hinman and his connections to Simpson Thacher, which promotes Enterprise Ethereum.

Possible Effects on the Cryptocurrency Market

The conclusion of the OIG investigation and the verdict on SEC v. Coinbase could be decisive for XRP and the cryptocurrency market in general. If the OIG finds conflicts of interest within the SEC, it could force the agency to reevaluate its intentions to appeal against the XRP programmatic sales decision, favoring a more positive environment for XRP and the crypto sector.

These legal developments, along with the IMF’s recognition of Ripple and XRP, underscore the growing adoption of cryptocurrencies in the financial system and their ability to support public policy objectives.

XRP price predictions vary, with some optimistic speculation indicating it could reach $11.00 USD per XRP by 2027, while other analyses suggest possible near-term targets of $0.7348 USD.

Some analysts even project a significant increase in the price of XRP, with targets of $5-$7 in the near term and as high as $27 by mid-2025, which would represent an increase of nearly 4,500%.

In addition, Ripple’s ongoing legal situation with the SEC may influence XRP’s future performance.
