The battle of Ripple XRP vs. SEC has no end in sight

In December 2020, the SEC sued Ripple Labs, the company behind Ripple, claiming that the sale of Ripple XRP was an unregistered securities offering. Not willing to give up, Ripple Labs has fought with the SEC ever since.

After an extensive back-and-forth battle, the outcome is still undecided. With the potential for Ripple XRP trading to be halted in some exchanges again, like Coinbase did when the lawsuit was announced, some investors are cutting their losses with the cryptocurrency as the future remains very uncertain for Ripple XRP.

While just this week, the SEC lost a battle to remove 67,000 XRP holders from petitioning the courts, some are wondering if XRP will ever reach the highs of $1.96 it saw back in April 2021 again. Now, crypto enthusiasts are looking to new projects, like, for a more promising place to put their money.

Trouble in paradise for Solana (SOL)

While Solana has undergone the same fall-from-grace as Ripple XRP, other questions over the project’s long-term viability are being raised. Extended downtime is plaguing the network, with seven outages in recent months, more than any other mainstream project in the proof-of-stake ecosystem. This significant downtime is hurting investor confidence substantially.

Other issues raised, like lower-than-promised transactions per second and centralization of the network’s validators, are also cause for concern. Some say that a 51% attack due to this centralization may be more likely than with other top cryptocurrencies.

With the release of a Solana-based Android phone costing $1000, analysts have started to wonder if this is just a cash grab before prices decline further for the Solana project. At the time of writing the price of Solana’s native token (SOL) is $38.89
