- Ripple’s partial victory against the SEC could be the catalyst that kickstarts a new-found rally for altcoins.
- Layer 1 tokens like Solana and Compound could see interest among investors, as will MATIC and other Layer 2 tokens.
- Investors are likely to see their portfolio grow if they stick to the buy-and-hold strategy as opposed to risk leverage trading.
Ripple’s win against the United States (US) Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) caused a short-term spike in bullish momentum, which was soon followed by profit-taking, causing cryptocurrencies to pull back. But the partial win that Ripple scored could have long-term ramifications and could catalyze a larger move by the end of the weekend.
DeFi and Layer 2 cryptocurrencies could be next to run
As explained above, the capital inflow that caused XRP and other altcoins to pump and the subsequent profits realized from the rally will be looking to head elsewhere. Observing the cryptocurrencies that are pumping could give a clue as to what is next.
Currently, the Compound platform’s COMP token is seeing a spike in buying pressure. A popular Twitter user with the screen name Hsaka tweeted that this rally could be the start of a bull rally for the Decentralized Finance (DeFi) sector.

Likewise, as Ethereum’s Improvement Proposal (EIP) 4844 picks up steam, Layer 2 tokens could also see a similar influx of capital, causing a massive run-up..
