- Ripple’s triumph over the SEC lawsuit opens doors for further financial explorations, including a speculated IPO.
- Expert analysis suggests a significant surge in valuation post-IPO, potentially propelling XRP price.
In the aftermath of a landmark victory against the U.S. SEC, Ripple (XRP) has been basking in a rekindled financial spotlight. This celebratory phase, highlighted in recent updates, directs attention towards the blockchain entity’s prospective Initial Public Offering (IPO).
A Legal Milestone: A Favorable Verdict Brings Hope
Judge Analisa Torres’ pivotal ruling established that secondary sales of XRP tokens don’t classify as investment contracts, thus evading the dreaded securities tag under the SEC’s lens. This judgement not only propelled XRP’s price and trading volume but reinstated its market stature as various crypto platforms reintroduced the token, overturning their prior stance spurred by regulatory fears.
IPO Buzz: Beyond the $1 Milestone
As legal clouds disperse and trading vigor resumes, the narrative now veers towards XRP breaching the $1 milestone and beyond. The anticipation around Ripple’s potential IPO further fuelled by the upcoming Ripple‘s Proper Party event on September 28, earmarked to revel in the legal win, is fanning speculative fires concerning Ripple’s valuation. Linda P. Jones, a seasoned Wall Street analyst, sheds light on how Ripple’s stock value could skyrocket post-IPO, resonating with Coinbase’s IPO success tale.
“Given the newfound legal clarity and the substantial XRP reserves in escrow, the post-IPO valuation surge could either mirror or surpass the trajectory witnessed with Coinbase.”
Valuation Dynamics: A Coinbase Parallel
Drawing a parallel with Coinbase’s impressive valuation rise post-IPO, Jones delineated a likely similar pathway for Ripple. She highlighted the glaring undervaluation of Ripple, especially given its enormous escrow-held XRP reserve, currently valued at a whopping $21 billion.
Jones further conjectured,
“Resembling esteemed entities like Nvidia, Apple, and Amazon, Ripple’s synergy with reputable corporations and its inherent potential could significantly elevate its valuation, revolutionizing the financial landscape within the cryptocurrency realm.”
Should Ripple venture into the IPO domain, following Coinbase’s blueprint, its valuation might skyrocket, propelled by its intrinsic stock value and additional valuation brought forth by its XRP holdings. Jones envisages a scenario where Ripple‘s stock value could soar 20-fold, hitting a valuation of $600 per share on September 29. This monumental surge, primarily driven by its legal prowess, significant XRP reserves, and burgeoning IPO fervor among investors, paints a bullish picture for both Ripple and XRP, promising a substantial financial metamorphosis.
