There are probably three reasons why XRP is doing reasonably well at the moment despite the process the SEC initiated on December 22, 2020 (which has caused XRP to be delisted from several U.S.-based cryptocurrency exchanges.
- Bitcoin spent the last month in the $ 55K – $ 60k range giving altcoins market space, with some investors / traders shifting their investments to altcoins.
- XRP is the “cheapest” currency among the top 10 cryptocurrencies and its price is lower compared to its historic high of $ 3.31, which was reached in January 2018.
- A victory by Ripple over the SEC could take cryptocurrency to new heights.
