Ripple, the cross-border payment firm that oversees the distribution of XRP, uses its own holdings to cover operational expenses. So, for this major reason, the firm moves funds between its wallet and sometimes sells them in the process.

At the time of filing this report, XRP is trading at $0.2697, with about a 5% price downtrend in the last 24 hours. According to CoinMarketCap, the cryptocurrency is ranked 5th behind Polkadot (DOT) that currently occupies the 4th position in the market.

Over the past couple of days, XRP has been showing a sign of recovery, which resulted in surging to the $0.35 price region, but failed to hold the level as a support.

XRP Delisted By Binance.US

The digital token XRP started losing value significantly in the market following the formal announcement of the lawsuit filed by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) against Ripple on 22nd December 2021.

The delisting of the cryptocurrency from various exchanges only made the matter worse. Due to the charges against Ripple, crypto exchanges such as Bittrex, Coinbase, Binance.US, among others, formally announced the date that the suspension of XRP trading will be effected on their respective platforms.

According to Binance.US’s announcement a couple of weeks ago, trading of XRP has been officially suspended since 13th January 2021, which has brought about a lot of questions from users who reacted to Whale Alert’s tweet about the exchange moving 30 million XRP.

Meanwhile, Ripple and two of its top executives have separately hired a total of 21 Attorneys to represent them in the court. And pretrial conference on the case has been slated for 22nd February 2021.
