While the crypto community watches the ongoing Ripple vs. SEC legal fight, Attorney Jeremy Hogan recently forecasted that the case would resolve by July 2023. Hogan was reacting to the latest clip where Brad Garlinghouse, Ripple CEO, stated that the lawsuit would end in the coming weeks.

He added that the securities regulator has attempted to hide Hinman’s testimony. Nonetheless, reported that the court denied SEC’s motion to seal Hinman’s docs. Meanwhile, on-chain data shows fading hype for the remittance coin. XRP’s social dominance plunged to 1.228%.

The social dominance index measures the volume of mentions compared to other assets in the top 100 list by market cap. Thus, the drop means a dip in the asset’s interest/hype.
