XRP’s most recent price surge—the token briefly touched $0.60 in February before dipping to $0.41 two weeks later—may signal that investors believe the cryptocurrency, and the firm behind it, can survive the SEC’s case, especially after stablecoin issuer Tether escaped a years-long New York Attorney General’s Office investigation into financial fraud with an $18.5 million fine but no admission of guilt.

The coin’s price may also demonstrate that the crypto market overall is just really, really hot. However, it has increased in price at a faster clip than several other coins in the top 10. According to Nomics, XRP’s price has gone up 170% since the start of the year, outpacing Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, and Chainlink among the top 10 coins in market cap.
