XRP Price Shoots 15% Amid Huge Investor Demand to Relist XRP After the Latest SEC Hearing

The Ripple vs SEC feud is taking a new turn after the latest SEC hearing last Friday, March 19. The U.S. SEC lawyers stated that exchanges won’t be violating any securities laws upon relisting the XRP cryptocurrency.
XRP price has shot since then and is up 15% at the time of writing this article. As of press time, XRP is trading at a price of $0.58 with a market cap of $26.5 billion.
