Ripple (XRP) Gains Over 15% - What are the Reasons

Ripple shook the crypto market with a sharp rise in its price on Tuesday. The coin gained pace as investors and traders continued to put their faith behind Ripple in its case against the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The case began in 2020 when the SEC alleged that Ripple raised more than $1.3 Billion via unregistered digital asset securities offering.

Since then, Ripple and the SEC are in an ongoing legal battle with each other. However, recent developments indicate that the case is heading towards a conclusion that might benefit the crypto firm.

As a result, investors have rushed into pouring funds in XRP. The coin touched a high of over $0.49 on Tuesday but now it has consolidated back to $0.45. Nevertheless, the coin has gained 16.21% over the past 24 hours. Ripple (XRP) is currently ranked 6th with a market cap of over $23.06 Billion in the list of top cryptocurrencies by market cap.

The price action of XRP was supported by the positive momentum of Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH). BTC has crossed $28K and ETH is moving around the $1,800 mark. Moreover, the XRP ledger has also posted significant growth despite uncertain macroeconomic factors. This has led to an increasing positivity around Ripple.
