Ripple’s Showdown: SEC Response Deadline Nears – XRP Price Eyeing $1 Milestone

  • Stuart Alderoty, Ripple Labs’ Chief Legal Officer, updated the timeline for the ongoing Ripple vs. SEC lawsuit.
  • Ripple is required to submit a response to the SEC’s penalty demands by April 22.

Chief Legal Officer at Ripple Labs, has recently provided an update on the timeline of the ongoing lawsuit between Ripple and the SEC. 

Alderoty explained that Ripple must submit a response to the SEC’s demands for penalties by April 22, while the SEC is scheduled to deliver its response by May 6. This clarification dispels earlier rumors suggesting that a settlement was likely to occur soon in the case.

The legal controversy stems from the SEC’s allegations that Ripple conducted unauthorized securities transactions with its crypto, XRP. The SEC is seeking penalties that could total nearly $2 billion, dependent on several criteria including the proceeds from XRP sales to U.S. institutional investors both before and after the SEC’s complaints, and the financial impact on these investors.

Despite the dismissal of individual charges, Ripple itself still faces potential substantial fines. This legal uncertainty has impacted the market performance of XRP, contributing to its recent price fluctuations.

As Ripple prepares its legal defenses, the broader cryptocurrency community watches closely, understanding that the outcome of this case could significantly affect the regulatory landscape for digital currencies in the United States.

 

The current price of XRP (Ripple) is approximately $0.488672 USD. Recently, XRP has been trading in a daily range between $0.488568 and $0.506170. Over the past year, XRP has experienced a price range of $0.412962 to $0.887511

Based on this information and recent trends in the cryptocurrency market, I predict that XRP could potentially increase to around $0.50 in the short term, assuming market conditions remain stable and there are no significant negative developments in the crypto industry or regulatory challenges.
