Ripple (CCC:XRP-USD) is making news on Thursday as the crypto prepares for another faceoff with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) later this month.
A telephonic conference between Ripple and the SEC has been set for May 21. This will have the SEC pushing for legal documents from Ripple concerning legal advice it has gotten concerning the regulatory status of XRP.
Magistrate Judge Sarah Netburn will be overseeing the telephonic conference between the two organizations. The SEC is no doubt hoping to gain some ground on its lawsuit against Ripple but there’s still no ruling against the crypto company.
The battle between Ripple and the SEC has been going on for months now. The latest hearing took place on April 30. Based on how Ripple investors reacted on Twitter, they seem confident that XRP is going to beat the SEC in this lawsuit.
There are also other reasons to believe that Ripple plans to keep pushing on. That includes plans for an initial public offering (IPO). The crypto company was considering one before the lawsuit and apparently is still making moves toward going public.
It’s worth pointing out that XRP has been performing incredibly well this year in terms of growth. The crypto is up 493.9% since the start of the year despite the legal battle with the SEC. That’s also surprising since the cryptocurrency is only available to trade on a couple of exchanges. That’s also due to other exchanges avoiding XRP while the lawsuit is underway.
XRP was down 8.6% over a 24-hour period on Thursday morning.
