Xangle’s Take on the Market This Week

  • The crypto market spiked this week after XRP issuer Ripple Labs won a partial victory in its legal battle with the SEC. In addition to Ripple (+68.0%), price gains were also observed in Solana (+44.6%), ADA (+28.8%), and Polygon (+29.1%), all of which were classified as securities by the SEC. Bitcoin (+4.39%) and Ethereum (+8.39%), which have stayed away from the security classification issue, saw relatively modest price gains (*Gains over a week’s period).
  • For more information on the SEC-Ripple case, please see Xangle Original "Xangle In-House Attorney's Analysis of the Ripple Ruling" (published on July 14, 2023).
