Originally aired on July 19, 2023

XRP Surges on Ripple Lawsuit Progress as Markets Rally

The cryptocurrency XRP saw a massive price surge after a judge’s ruling indicated some XRP sales are not securities in Ripple’s ongoing lawsuit with the SEC. The upbeat host Wendy celebrates the gains made by XRP investors, while cautioning the lawsuit still continues. She analyzes the nuances of the judge’s decision, with Ripple winning on some issues but not others.

Wendy stresses the importance of bipartisan legislation like the Clarity Act to provide regulatory clarity for crypto. Other updates covered include the arrest of Celsius CEO Alex Mashinsky, Coinbase adding support for Helium, and Elon Musk launching an AI firm. Criticism is directed at the IMF for urging protection of fiat currencies over crypto and the SEC for unclear guidance stifling innovation.
