Updates on SEC Lawsuit Underpins Ripple at $0.6408  

Ripple has shown interest in bolstering its defense against the SEC lawsuit. Two SEC commissioners said that Ripple was not given enough clarity around how securities laws should be implemented to digital assets.

Two of the current five SEC commissioners, Hester Peirce and Elad Roisman, made some statements. Ripple has decided to use in court before judge Analisa Torres of the Southern District of New York.  

Ripple has filed a new motion requesting the court to consider the statement made by two SEC commissioners. The XRP/USD wasn’t informed with enough clarity about how securities laws could be applied to digital assets.

Hester Pierce said that SEC should have provided enough clarity on how crypto companies should operate. Ripple uses this statement to bolster its “lack of fair notice” defense against the lawsuit with SEC.

On the other hand, SEC is hoping to overturn the latest move from Ripple. The remarks made by Commissioners were not statements made by SEC itself. These cannot be used against SEC as they do not hold any authority with the court.

Stronger Dollar Weighted on Ripple Over Weekend, But Not Anymore

The boosted strength of the U.S. dollar kept the gains in XRP/USD limited over the weekend. The U.S. Dollar Index that estimates the dollar worth against the basket of six major currencies rose to 93.0 level, limiting the upward momentum in XRP/USD.

The recent bullish trend of the cryptocurrency market was driven by the surge in the price of the leading cryptocurrency. Bitcoin also supported the gains in XRP/USD. Bitcoin was gaining traction in the market as investors were entering the market, hoping to gain profit from lower prices of BTC/USD.  

Furthermore, the latest positive remarks from Elon Musk and Jack Dorsey also pushed bitcoin prices higher that ultimately supported the whole cryptocurrency market.
