Whales aren’t the only positive news for Ripple
There are many developments that have kept Ripple and XRP on the agenda lately. The latest whale processes at the top are the latest in a series of purchases throughout the week. However, the Ripple and SEC case is gaining positive strength on the crypto side. The catalyst for last week’s over 40% XRP rally was directly related to the lawsuit.
David Gokhstein, a former US politician, took to Twitter to highlight the importance of Ripple’s win. Ripple is the company behind the XRP token. Therefore, the outcome of the SEC and Ripple lawsuit raises the altcoin’s potential for a price rally. Gokhstein put the bullish outlook on XRP into language and said:
I want to hit the buy XRP button.
Latest from Ripple-SEC case
Brad Garlinghouse, CEO of Ripple, is optimistic about the SEC and the Ripple case. The executive argues that there is sufficient evidence for a judge to decide without a panel whether XRP is a security or not. Garlinghouse says the submission of both motions by the SEC and payments giant Ripple is sufficient for Judge Analisa Torres to make a decision. Garlinghouse believes the facts of the case are indisputable, and during his appearance on Fox Business, the Ripple CEO shared his conviction with the XRP investor.
Former US congressional candidate Gokhstein believes that if Ripple gets a win, it could affect the flawless uptrend of the entire cryptocurrency market. The decision on the SEC’s appeal is still pending, with Judge Torres to rule on the expert motions and summary judgment on or before March 31, 2023.
FXStreet technical analyst Tony Montpeirous has determined that the XRP price has invalidated the triangle-looking consolidation pattern. Tony argues that the RSI shows that Ripple is auctioning off a firm line in the sand for a bull market correction. Therefore, a bearish outlook on XRP could be troubling. The analyst predicted that XRP price will rise to a new high near the $0.61 level in the short term.
