A recent victory for Ripple against the SEC has been seen as a positive outcome for the cryptocurrency firm and the broader crypto community. The court ruled that XRP sales on crypto exchanges were not considered securities sales, potentially avoiding a more severe scenario if the SEC had won. Legal expert John E. Deaton suggests that had the SEC emerged victorious, stricter regulations led by SEC Chief Gary Gensler and Senator Elizabeth Warren could have had a significant impact on the crypto industry. The ruling is seen as a setback for the SEC’s control over the crypto asset class. Following the legal win, the value of XRP experienced some fluctuations but remains higher than it was a month ago, showing continued market optimism.
