XRP Price Faces Pressure Amid SEC and Ripple’s Bid for Secrecy in Lawsuit

  • XRP’s price decline and legal challenges with the SEC contribute to market uncertainty.
  • Whale transactions and expert analysis signal potential further declines for XRP.

The primary currency of the XRP Ledger, XRP, has declined significantly, and it crossed the critical support level of $0.60 on Wednesday. The ongoing legal issues and market forces that are driving this decline are part of the token’s bearish trajectory.

Intensifying Legal Battle Between SEC and Ripple

The US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and Ripple Labs jointly requested this week that some documents pertaining to the next remedies brief, which is due on March 22, be withheld until March 26.

This represents a big step forward in the continuing legal battle between the two groups. The bitcoin community is interested in this legal strategy because it adds another layer of complexity to the problem.

Observations on Whale Transactions and Market Response

Even though the value of XRP has been dropping, there has been some activity among large-scale XRP holders, or “whales.” Santiment’s analysis revealed more than 14,000 noteworthy XRP transactions during the last 10 days, suggesting that a possible divestment may have had a role in the price decline.

Further evidence that these whales are primarily losing money comes from the Network Realized Profit/Loss measure, which points to a possible surrender on the part of some of these significant investors.

According to ETHNews previous report, a Ripple supporter previously listed four catalysts that could push XRP’s price above $3 in 2024, including regulatory clarity, institutional adoption, technological advancements, and growing global utility. This YouTube video provides a more in-depth description of these developments.
