At press time, XRP is trading at approximately $0.51, reversing gains made earlier in the week, following Ripple’s announcement of its participation in an alliance aimed at facilitating digital asset recovery, alongside Hedera and the Algorand Foundation. 

Another significant factor impacting the price of XRP, currently testing crucial support at $0.50, is the lawsuit confronting Ripple from the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). This legal battle revolves around the question of whether the sales of XRP to institutional investors constitute unregistered sales of securities.

Both Ripple and the SEC have submitted their motions, counter-motions, and supporting evidence during the remedies phase. Currently, they’re just awaiting the ruling on the penalties Ripple may face for the purported violation of securities laws.
