These licenses are part of Ripple’s strategy to navigate the global regulatory landscape, emphasizing the company’s efforts to comply with international financial regulations while expanding its services.
A spike in trading volumes
According to the report, XRP trading volumes experienced a significant increase in Q4 2023, in line with the overall uptrend in the cryptocurrency market. This rise in trading activity reflects a growing interest in XRP among investors, amidst a broader crypto market rally.
Ripple’s commentary on the future suggests that the market might see further changes, particularly with the potential for increased institutional interest following the development of approved ETFs.
