The price of XRP dropped drastically when Ripple got involved in a lawsuit with the SEC in 2020. However, this decline did not lead to a decrease in the popularity and adoption of the platform. Now, the SEC-Ripple lawsuit is drawing to a close. Both parties applied to the judiciary for a summary decision.
