Vinod Dsouza

XRP is down nearly 17% in the last 30 days and its market cap is facing similar corrections. In a month, XRP has shed $5 billion in market cap and fell below the $20 billion mark from its previous levels of $25 billion. The fall comes at a time when positive news about the Ripple Vs SEC lawsuit made the rounds on social media. Its market cap is now below $20 billion reaching $19.4 billion on Thursday.

The ongoing and harsh bearish market conditions are taking a toll on leading cryptos making them bleed despite any positive news. The crypto markets headed to the red zone on Thursday as Bitcoin and Ethereum are down 3% and 5.1%, respectively.

What’s Next For XRP?


Ripple registered minor wins against the SEC last month after being entangled in a legal battle for more than a year. A few notable wins include a decision to overrule the SEC’s attempt to withhold the documents relating to former Division Director William Hinman. The documents show a speech where Hinman is heard saying that Ethereum (ETH) was a security.

The development shows that minor wins no longer take XRP on the greener side of the spectrum in the indices. Ripple needs to win bigger battles against the SEC to move the needle toward the green.
