At present, Ripple is under very big legal stress because of the lawsuit initiated by the SEC agency against the team & company. Through the lawsuit, the SEC claimed that the company sold more than $1.2 Billion worth of XRP tokens publicly, which was illegal under the securities law.
Initially, the XRP lawsuit was initiated against Ripple in December 2020 and now the lawsuit anniversary is going to hit two years.
Reports noted that crypto investors are continuously moving toward the XRP investment and showing their bullish sentiment amid the SEC vs Ripple case. Reportedly
XRP has seen $1.1 million in asset inflows for the third week running.
At present around 12 Ripple partners & supporters are in line to support the Ripple company in the lawsuit, where Coinbase & US Senator Cynthia Lummis from Wyoming are popular names.
