The announcement, alongside the latest news on XRP marching towards a decisive victory against the SEC, boosted the price of the token this week, which is currently trading at $0.60. The coin has been up around 12% in the last two weeks, according to data from TradingView.
Brad Garlinghouse, who alongside Chris Larsen got cleared of all charges, stated that Ripple will double down its presence in Dubai and looks forward to working with regulators to “realize crypto’s full potential.”
“Dubai continues to demonstrate global leadership when it comes to the regulation of virtual assets and nurturing innovation. It’s refreshing to see the DFSA encourage the adoption and use of digital assets such as XRP to position Dubai as a leading financial services hub intent on attracting foreign investment and accelerating economic growth.”
