Ripple up 50% in SEC test news as cryptocurrency markets lose $40 billion: Briefing this week

The past seven days have been very painful in the cryptocurrency market with most of them trading well in the red. This has resulted in a loss of $40 billion of the total capitalization approaching $900 billion. The most visible of this is Ripple’s XRP which is up 50%. Let’s unpack.

Bitcoin is currently just under $19,000, down 5.7% in the past week. Seven days ago, it was trading around $19,500 and even managed to cross $20,000 on Sunday, but the bears quickly rose and pushed BTC back towards $18,500.

From there, the cryptocurrency made another attempt to recover, but the Fed’s decision to raise interest rates again sent the market south, and BTC once again found itself at roughly the same level of $18,500. Since then, the cryptocurrency has failed to recover.

Most altcoins are also drawing significant losses, with ETH in the lead, down more than 12% weekly. The merger appears to have failed to positively impact the price, at least for the time being. However, the most obvious external factor is XRP, which has managed to surge by a whopping 50% in the past seven days.

This was mostly because the lawsuit with the US Securities and Exchange Commission is about to make a decision, and the market appears to be pricing in a positive settlement. Earlier this week, Ripple Labs and the SEC submitted proposals for an immediate ruling, and a ruling could come as soon as the next few months.

Another significant event was the fact that Nasdaq introduced cryptocurrency services focused on institutional investors. Nasdaq remains one of the largest exchanges, and its involvement in cryptocurrencies is interpreted as a sign that big money is still interested in the asset class.

However, given the overall headwinds, general anxiety and uncertainty in the broader markets, it will be very interesting to see how the coming months unfold.
