Crypto experts have predicted a recovery in SUI after the meme coin hit a new all-time low on the day of its mainnet launch. The explosive price rally in meme coins shifted the spotlight from Shiba-Inu-themed meme coins to PEPE.
SUI token is poised for recovery, according to experts
SUI token is a native gas and governance token of the move-based Layer-1 blockchain platform. The token is poised for recovery in its price after hitting an all-time low of $1.15, on May 3 after mainnet launch.
Crypto Faibik, a technical expert evaluated the SUI price chart, identifying a falling wedge pattern. The falling wedge is a technical chart pattern that occurs when the asset's price is moving in an overall bullish trend and it generally corrects lower.

However, in the case of SUI, Faibik predicts a 9.5% uptrend in the token as price approaches the upper trendline of the channel. A decisive close past the upper trendline could push SUI price to $1.42.
The expert therefore presents a thesis of the end of consolidation where SUI price bursts through the upper trendline past the wedge’s resistance at $1.29.

Lawyers debate Ripple’s sale of XRP tokens
Lawyers engaged in an intense debate arguing over the status of XRP as a security and the sale of XRP by payment giant Ripple and its executives. Retired attorney Mark Fagel and XRP proponent John Deaton debated over Ripple’s initial sales of XRP.
Let me repeat what I wrote to Judge Torres:— John E Deaton (@JohnEDeaton1) May 5, 2023
“The SEC asks this Court to validate its shorthand and analytically lazy contention that Ripple has engaged in the functional equivalent of a nine year-long, on-going, 24/7 ICO, and that each and every sale of XRP, from anywhere in the https://t.co/gFnr5VJMIo
Mark Fagel and Deaton both agree on the sale of XRP constituting a security, the debate is on the primary sales and secondary market transactions of XRP. While the US financial regulator, the SEC considers these transactions under a single blanket, Deaton argues that the primary and secondary market sales need to be considered separately.
