Will XRP price surge continue?
As per Attorney James Filan, Coinbase, a cryptocurrency exchange has filed its Amicus Brief in the support of Ripple. The exchange has slammed the SEC over rulemaking for Digital assets in its fillings.
Coinbase mentioned that formal rulemaking has led to an unexpected enforcement action like this. It has created market uncertainty and massively hit U.S. trading platforms like Coinbase. It is difficult to compete with offshore platforms in jurisdictions where there is minimum regulatory risk.

XRP prices have jumped by a whopping 16% to emerging as the most gained crypto in the last 24 hours. XRP is trading at an average price of $0.376, at the press time. Its 24 hour trading volume is up by 26% to stand at $2.3 billion.
