The SEC Lawsuit Going Well for Ripple
One of the biggest variables in XRP’s future price performance lies within the outcome of the lawsuit between the United States Securities and Exchange Commission and Ripple.
However, it appears that the process is going well in the company’s favor following the latest win on September 29th.
Back then, as CryptoPotato reported, New York judge Analisa Torres, ordered the SEC to turn over internal documents, which include emails and drafts. These relate to a speech from the former commissioner William Hinman in 2018.
The speech itself is well-known for containing comments on the legal status of Ether, where the commissioner said that ETH, alongside BTC, is not a security. Hinman’s internal emails are also considered relevant to the case, as some blieve he had conflicts of interest related to Ethereum. This is because he previously worked at a law firm with a seat at the Enterprise Ethereum Allinace.
Back then, as evident on the chart, the price exploded.
