Investors are keeping a close eye on the price of XRP as the cryptocurrency industry awaits the outcome of a lawsuit between the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and Ripple.
The outcome of the case has not yet been announced, and it remains to be seen whether the agency will extend its projected March 2023 summary adjudication date. A ruling in favor of Ripple will have a positive impact on XRP price.
Notably, predictions from CoinpriceForecast, a financial forecasting platform that uses machine learning techniques, show a significant increase in XRP by the end of the year.
XRP started the year at $0.3386 and is currently trading at $0.394, so the price is up more than 15% since the beginning of the year. The artificial intelligence (AI) platform price prediction is $0.49 by the end of 2023, up 26% from today. Meanwhile, the annual change was +45%.
