The ongoing legal battle between Ripple Labs and the SEC has intensified as Ripple (CRYPTO:XRP) attempts to leverage a recent court ruling on Binance’s BNB (CRYPTO:BNB) token in its defense.

Ripple argues that the ruling supports its stance against severe penalties from the SEC regarding XRP sales, citing regulatory ambiguity.

However, the SEC swiftly dismissed the relevance of the Binance case, asserting it does not apply to Ripple’s situation.

The legal confrontation has exacerbated volatility for XRP, which has dropped to $0.45 amid broader market declines, marking a significant decline from recent highs.

The outcome of this legal dispute continues to impact XRP’s valuation and investor sentiment.
