The process will take place over the phone. It is then expected that the judge can set a preliminary date for the hearing. The cryptocurrency community was skeptical about the seriousness of the upcoming meeting due to the chosen format:

The regulator’s accusations have already led to the fact that the price of XRP in the XRP / USDT pair fell from $ 0.58 to $ 0.20.

According to the SEC, starting in 2013, Ripple was able to sell XRP tokens in the amount of $ 1.3 billion. Ripple said that through a lawsuit, the American regulator brought only uncertainty to the crypto market, “actively harming the community that they should protect.”.

The company has assured that it will continue to support all products and customers in the United States and around the world.
