Nate Geraci, President at The ETF Store Inc, noted a shift in sentiment within the crypto community regarding ETFs. Previously, there was speculation about the denial of Spot Ethereum ETFs, but now there is discussion about the potential for Solana (SOL) and XRP ETFs.

While attention has turned toward the possibility of an XRP ETF approval by 2025, the community is still awaiting the outcome of the SEC vs. Ripple lawsuit. In 2020, the SEC accused Ripple of selling unregistered securities (XRP) to institutional clients and sought $2 billion in penalties. Following Judge Analisa Torres’ ruling that the sale of XRP on exchange platforms does not constitute securities, there is a possibility of the SEC appealing the decision. Ripple has countered the SEC’s demand with an offer of $10 million.

Technical analysis: XRP Aims Almost 7% Profits

From a technical analysis perspective, Ripple is currently in an uptrend that began on April 18. The altcoin has been forming higher highs and higher lows, and momentum indicators on the 1-day timeframe support the potential for gains in XRP price. XRP is currently holding above $0.5300, with the MACD indicator showing underlying positive momentum and the RSI signaling bullishness in XRP’s trend.

The target price for XRP is $0.5703, representing a 7.29% rally from the current level. Should the altcoin experience a pullback, support could be found at the May 13 low of $0.4866, which has historically been a level for recovery attempts.
