Ripple CEO unfazed by the SEC’s position in the lawsuit
Brad Garlinghouse, the CEO of Ripple, recently told Bloomberg in an interview that the payment giant can continue doing business as usual. Garlinghouse believes that the US is the only country that classifies XRP as a security.
XRP was hit by the SEC’s lawsuit when the altcoin suffered a slew of delistings from cryptocurrency platforms and exchanges. Despite the lawsuit and the aftermath, XRP price recovered and resumed its uptrend.
Proponents argue that the recent updates in the SEC vs. Ripple case do not influence XRP’s price negatively. Therefore, XRP price could continue its recovery irrespective of the outcome of the SEC vs. Ripple case.
The regulator has pocketed small wins along the way in its lawsuit against XRP, and the altcoin is currently in a phase of consolidation. However, the rising commercial utility and Ripple’s latest rebrand initiative could drive demand for the altcoin higher.
Irrespective of Ripple’s win, loss or settlement in the SEC’s case against it, XRP price could recover from its pullback and wipe out losses of investors.
Analysts at @IncomeSharks have identified a short setup in XRP’s current price trend. Before starting a climb, XRP could find support lower than the downside target of $0.61 unless buyers line up on exchanges to fuel the altcoin’s recovery.
