Furthermore, earlier this year, former Ripple executive Sean McBride said that we may see an XRP ETF either in 2024 or 2025. Additionally, McBride said we may see a Ripple IPO (Initial Public Offering) outside the US in 2025.

Before a spot XRP ETF is approved, Ripple has to deal with its ongoing lawsuit with the SEC. The SEC alleges that Ripple sold unregistered securities. Last year, a US district court ruled that selling XRP to retail clients did not breach securities laws, but selling the token to institutions did. The lawsuit has entered the high court, and investors await a verdict. If the high court rules similarly to the district court, we may see an XRP ETF make its debut. The move will also likely lead to a major price spike.

Furthermore, if the SEC approves a spot Ethereum (ETH) ETF, we may witness a market-wide rally. In such a scenario, XRP may also see a price pump. The asset has struggled to gain momentum, especially due to Ripple’s ongoing lawsuit.
