The SEC is eying a mouthwatering $770 million penalty for the illegal sales of XRP to institutional investors. However, recent chatter on X (formerly Twitter) highlighted questionable ethics practices.

Considering Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse’s reaction to a recent former SEC Chair Jay Clayton interview, negotiations could go down to the wire.

Focal points could include the Bill Hinman speech-related documents and SEC plans to appeal the Programmatic Sales ruling.

Investors may have discounted behind-the-scenes talks to settle. However, the Hinman docs could be persuasive enough to force the SEC into a settlement that prevents appeals on case-related rulings. While an unlikely scenario, Ripple could agree on a penalty closer to $770 million to allow the SEC to save face.

Settlement terms that prevent the SEC from appealing would be a boon for XRP and the broader market.

Judge Analisa Torres ordered both parties to propose a briefing schedule by November 9 concerning remedies for the remaining charges against Ripple. Since the Court order, there have been no updates from the SEC or Ripple on the status of settlement talks.

While the SEC v Ripple case remains the focal point, Ripple and XRP Ledger continues to break down barriers in the digital asset space.

XRP Healthcare Goes Dubai and the Middle East

On Monday, news hit the wires of XRP Healthcare following Ripple into Dubai and the Middle East.

XRP Healthcare is the first pharma and healthcare platform on the XRP Ledger. XRP Healthcare Founder Kain Roomes had this to say,

“Our entry into Dubai and the Middle East marks a significant step in our journey. This move combines healthcare innovation with the transformative potential of blockchain technology. The region’s forward-thinking approach and commitment to fostering innovation align perfectly with our vision of a healthier world powered by the convergence of healthcare and blockchain.”

XRP Healthcare harnesses the power of blockchain technology to transform healthcare services, delivering accessibility and efficiency to everyone. Significantly, XRP Healthcare has a 48-month roadmap, with an IPO or a conglomerate acquisition slated for 2027.
