Profitable a movement for a protecting order on discovery doesn’t normally portend victory on the deserves of the case itself. It relies upon. And the Courtroom left open the chance a few of this might revisit later, if there are causes to test veracity.

Ripple fairness is ‘buying and selling’ in secondary market at $2-3bn valuation. The $XRP on their stability sheet is value approx $70bn. One worth appears improper. If XRP worth is saying settlement coming, the fairness is loopy low cost. If not, the token appears costly. Ideas?

I don’t know the way one can correlate worth itself to settlement except somebody has inside details about potential SEC settlement/decision and talent for exchanges to re-list for buying and selling. Ripple has performed higher than I anticipated to this point in preliminary movement apply and discovery fights, however there’s a great distance from that to case decision.
