Cryptocurrencies and crypto-related stocks rallied after a federal court ruled that Rippleā€™s XRP tokens sold on exchanges or through algorithms were not in violation of federal securities laws.

According to CoinDesk, Bitcoin ( BTC ) broke through the $31,000 barrier, reaching $31,700 as of press time. This is its highest level since over a year.

Several native blockchain tokens such as Solana, ( SOL), Polygon, ( MATIC), and Cardano, ( ADA), which were all deemed by the Securities and Exchanges Commission to be unregistered securities during previous lawsuits , rose around 15% in response to the news. XRP rose by about 70%, to $0.80.

Stocks like MicroStrategy, which was the subject of a SEC suit in June for selling unregistered securities, soared by 12% and Coinbase (which had been the target of a SEC lawsuit since June) climbed 24%. Crypto miners also saw a sharp rise, with Marathon Digital and Riot Platforms both gaining 14%. Hut 8 mining (HUT), meanwhile, jumped 19%.

Charles Storry said that investors have stayed away from crypto due to the Security and Exchange Commission (SEC) taking a public and harsh stance on crypto. The Ripple ruling was the beginning of this capital entering the space.

Coinbase Tweeted shortly following the announcement that it will re-enable the trading of XRP – USD, XRP -USDT and XRP – EUR trading pairs on the XRP Network as soon as sufficient liquidity is available.

Will Sheehan said, “Traders had been waiting for Ripple’s ruling for quite some time. It has been talked about as a major catalyst.”
