XRP Only Altcoin in Top-10 to Not Have a New ATH

XRP was at its lowest when most of the cryptocurrency was retesting its new ATH at the start of this year, XRP price fell to its lowest in three years all thanks to the US SEC’s security lawsuit. However, it defied most of the odds and market predictions about it to record a new three-year high of $1.96. However, the biggest factor that could push its price 300% from its current value is that it is the only cryptocurrency in the top-10 to have not retested its ATH.

The latest development in the XRP lawsuit has put Ripple in the spotlight after it continues to delay producing Slack data demanded by SEC. SEC filed an emergency motion regarding the same and believes the communication data could help it prove its case of XRP being security. On the other hand, Ripple has also sealed some parts of William Hinman’s deposition without SEC’s objection, fueling the narrative for an internal settlement.

XRP has joined the second leg of this bull run quite in time which could help its price surge in accordance with the rest of the market, increasing its chances of retesting its ATH of $3.84 again.
