Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse gave an impassioned speech at the party, highlighting key points from the legal decision. Garlinghouse took to the stage to deliver a speech which inspired confidence in the XRP community while also acknowledging key personalities in the Ripple team. 

Notable individuals recognized included General Counsel at Ripple Stuart Alderoty, Deborah McCrimmon, and CTO David Schwartz. Members of Ripple’s legal team were also appreciated, with names like John Deaton, Jeremy Hogan, and James K. Filan. 

XRP market cap currently at $27.5 billion. Chart: Garlinghouse also gave kudos to XRP’s vast community, attributing the success to the faith from its members. “When the going got tough, you guys were so supportive to Ripple, to me. I want to thank all of you,” Garlinghouse said in his speech. 

“One thing I think we all learned is that it does take a village to fight a bully and this village beat the bully,” he also said.

Major Announcements At The Ripple Party Ripple’s future outlook wasn’t discussed at the event, as the gathering was just for celebration. Before the party even started, Garlinghouse tweeted to give a heads-up regarding any announcements. Ripple, on the other hand, recently backtracked on its intention to acquire the financial organization Fortress Trust.

While Ripple’s win on fair notice is important, the SEC’s lawsuit remains ongoing, and the stakes for the broader crypto market remain high. There have also been talks regarding a case settlement. However, many have seen the event as a major milestone for Ripple and XRP. In particular, attendees expressed a sense of relief and validation that the SEC ruling went in Ripple’s favor, even if partially.

The Ripple Proper Party was amazing!

Thanks Brad G. for the shoutout and truly, “this village beat the bully.”

AND it was amazing to meet so many wonderful XRP people – thank you for the kind words and love.
