Ripple’s latest victory pushed XRP on the bullish trajectory in the past 24 hours. The federal judge ruled that Ripple could push for fair notice as it is completely entitled to do so. This meant that Ripple’s central arguments against the U.S Securities and Exchange were validated by the court in the ruling against SEC’s motion.
Judge Analisa Torres, denied SEC’s motion to stop Ripple from using the “Fair Notice Defense”. Ripple for the longest time had expressed concerns over the same by stating that SEC hadn’t given them enough notice that it considered XRP to be a security.
Following this news, XRP was northbound and attempted to topple over its immediate resistance of a $0.76 price level. In the last 24 hours, XRP registered near about 15% gain and it traded close to $0.84. Currently, XRP is sideways on its charts displaying range-bound price action at the time of writing. In the past week, however, XRP continued to make gains as the coin appreciated by 6%.
