XRP Lawsuit: Amici Curiae Attorney Claims to have Critical Evidence about Community’s XRP Holdings

Published

on

The market is in upheaval with Attorney John E Deaton’s latest tweet about his claims on holding “objective empirical evidence” proving that the majority, amounting to approximately 60% of XRP Holders were unaware of Ripple when they had invested in the token for the first time. Henceforth, according to the Howey Test, it is almost impossible to ascertain that the XRP community was “relying on the promises and inducements of a promoter or company they’re oblivious to”.

The SEC is required to answer the crux of the matter, i.e., Why does XRP hold the securities status, by December 6, 2021, making it one of the most critical dates of judgment for XRP holders.

XRP Holders Suffer because of the lawsuit

Attorney Deaton had been granted the amici curiae status by the court last month, to put forward brief legal questions and concerns on behalf of Individual Movants and the XRP community. While the SEC has continued to assert its claims regarding securities status for XRP and has further alleged the violation of the Securities Act by the defendants in lieu of selling these digital assets. However, the Movants had already contented this stance last month, asserting that if XRP sales are marked as illegal, then the list of culprits extends far beyond Ripple and individual defendants.

Individual Movants argued that the SEC’s case against Ripple “directly attack[s] XRP Holders” through mischaracterizations of XRP Holders’ use of XRP and XRP’s connection to Defendants. Movants contest SEC’s claim that “the very ‘nature of XRP itself’ makes it a security,”, by noting that this will lead to the conclusion that “‘every individual in the world who is selling XRP would be committing a Section 5 violation,’” and so the XRP Holders’ XRP will be affected by the outcome of this litigation.

Despite XRP’s community’s undeniably consistent efforts at fighting the SEC, the XRP token holders are stuck with frozen assets and a comparatively bearish run during one of the fastest bull seasons. Last month, Attorney Deaton approached the court on behalf of the XRP community appealing to deny any further extensions given a large sum of XRP Holders are holding their XRP in retirement brokerage accounts, which has also been “frozen”. XRP holders are unable to touch their funds in any manner, including the inability to withdraw, due to the ongoing lawsuit.

Macro Guru Raoul Pal Owns XRP, Says Crypto Asset Has Phenomenal Risk-Reward Despite Ripple Lawsuit

Published

on

Real Vision chief executive Raoul Pal is explaining why he is a holder of the XRP and how he sees the crypto asset’s risk/reward ratio.

The former Goldman Sachs executive says in a new interview with Thinking Crypto that he bought a position in XRP about a year ago, citing the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission’s (SEC) lawsuit against the payments company Ripple as a primary factor.

“I bought it for the reason that A) It does have use cases and it is being used, and B) The court case is a phenomenal risk/reward.

It got heavily discounted in the price, and then I looked at it and thought, ‘Well, what’s it going to do? Fall 100% from here to zero? But if it gets solved, it’s [up] 10x.’ And I’m like, ‘Well that’s a no-brainer.’ Why would you not take a 10-1 risk/reward that has a catalyst around it?”

The SEC filed charges against Ripple last December alleging that the San Francisco-based payments company sold XRP as an unregistered security during its launch. The regulator alleges that XRP remains a security to this day.

Pal says his XRP bet hinges entirely on the court case.

“It’s all about this court case, right?

Because the price can’t go anywhere – it got delisted from everywhere. It can’t go anywhere until it’s resolved, because the richest, most powerful country on Earth is not allowed easily to invest in it.”

Ripple chief executive Brad Garlinghouse said last month that he was hopeful the legal battle would be resolved next year.

XRP constricts before breaking out to $1

Published

on

  • XRP price begins to move above the consolidation it has experienced post flash crash.
  • A key test of the $.90 value area would be the final hurdle before XRP hit $1.
  • Bullish entry setup is now present on XRP’s Point and Figure chart.

XRP price, like almost every other cryptocurrency, showed strong signs of recovery after the shock of this past Saturday’s flash crash wore off. The past three days of congestion after a strong rally from the lows may begin a new uptrend for XRP.

XRP price ready to test $0.90, $1.00 next

XRP price has held a strong level of support near the $0.83 value area every since Sunday. Concerns about further downside pressure remain, but the bullish behavior of XRP during the NY lunch hour showed evidence of some substantial buying volume.

There is a hypothetical long trade opportunity on the $0.05/3-box reversal Point and Figure XRP price chart. The entry is a buy stop at $1.05, a stop loss at $0.85 and profit target at $1.75. The entry is based on a Point and Figure pattern known as a Bearish Shakeout. This pattern is valid only when a trend reversal is anticipated and positioned to do so. A two-box trailing stop would help protect any implied profits.

If the hypothetical long entry triggers, traders should expect some resistance at the $1.15 and $1.25 value areas before any substantial rise occurs. Additionally, a pullback to the entry zone after $1.50 is another likely scenario that traders should watch out for.

However, bulls should be aware that downside risks remain for XRP. The biggest cloud hanging over XRP remains the unknowns with the ongoing SEC case, which will have ramifications market-wide.
