XRP gains 15% on Ripple lawsuit updates
After a few interesting updates regarding the SEC vs Ripple case emerged, the token’s 24-hour trading volume skyrocketed, gaining more than 100%. Brad Garlinghouse vowed Ripple would win the lawsuit.
District Judge Analisa Torres unsealed three important documents: two email strings (one from Chris Larsen and the other from Garlinghouse) and the notice of Brad Garlinghouse’s deposition in the SEC formal investigation. Further revelations are expected to keep pushing the coin up as the lawsuit moves forward.
