XRP is on record high amid credible reports that Ripple, the troubled Crypto juggernaut has not given up on going public despite its ongoing legal battle with the Securities and Exchange Commission

According to Yoshitaka Kitao, CEO of Japanese financial giant SBI Group, on their earnings call he revealed Ripple had plans to become a public company after the company settles a legal action brought against it by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission.

In his words:

“After the current lawsuit, Ripple will go public. The current CEO wants to do that. Chris wants to do that.”

Yoshitaka Kitao also added that its earlier investments made on the crypto company would pay off following a potential public listing, noting that SBI is the biggest outside shareholder of Ripple.

At the time of drafting this report, XRP traded at $1.5 on the FTX Exchange and posted gains of about 10.52% for the day. It was its largest daily gain in percentage terms since April 26.

Such impressive gains pushed the crypto-asset market level to $65 billion or 3.10% of the total cryptocurrency market valuation. At its highest point, the crypto asset market cap was $83.4 billion.

XRP had traded in a range of $1.37604 to $1.49604 in the previous twenty-four hours. For the week, XRP has recorded an impressive gain of about 43%.

Recall the Securities and Exchange Commission filed a lawsuit against the fintech company and its leaders including Garlinghouse and Larsen late last year, alleging that XRP was a $1.3-billion unregistered securities offering.

    The Crypto market is currently undergoing some form of price correction amid intensified profit-taking and fear of regulatory oversights, thereby pushing Dogecoin below the 60-cent price levels.

    On the broader crypto market, for the day, about 171,444 traders were liquidated. The largest single liquidation order happened on Bybit-ETH valued at $5.98 million.

    The fast-rising crypto was trading at below 60 cent posting losses of about 10% for the day on the FTX exchange, after trading near 70 cents some hours ago.

    I worry that, once the enthusiasm rolls out, there are no developers on it, there are no institutions coming in. But it’s got this moniker of the people’s coin right now,” Galaxy Digital’s Michael Novogratz said on Squawk Box.

    Also, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission Chair, Gary Gensler advised U.S lawmakers on providing more regulatory oversight to the cryptoverse.

    “Right now, the exchanges, trading in these crypto assets, do not have a regulatory framework either at the SEC or our sister agency, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission,” said Gensler, who further added, “there’s not a market regulator around these crypto exchanges, and thus, there’s really no protection against fraud or manipulation.”

    That being said, the crypto’s stellar performance over the past few months can’t be ignored as Dogecoin maximalists try to convince the world that crypto is a serious asset class with powerful billionaires like Elon Musk and Mark Cuban giving the Crypto asset endless support.
