Back in December 2020, the US SEC had taken Ripple Labs to court for selling unregistered securities in the United States. Ever since going to court, the price of the native token of Ripple XRP has continued to face a hard time.
However, the recent rulings made by the court are proving somewhat positive for Ripple, which in return is boosting the performance of XRP. The price of XRP is constantly moving in a positive direction and it has been gaining momentum.
Things are now becoming clearer for Ripple as many analysts and experts think the decision will be in favor of the blockchain company. This is the reason why the trading price of Ripple has been gaining momentum and it has moved higher in recent days.
