Ripple scores “very big win” as judge denies SEC’s motion for reconsideration in DPP ruling
The Ripple-SEC lawsuit, which started back in December 2020, is still on its way to a resolution, with the San Francisco-based tech giant being the one with more victories on its side. With that said, Magistrate Judge Sarah Netburn brought Ripple another “very big win,” as James K. Filan called it in his recent tweet, by denying the SEC’s motion for reconsideration of the DPP ruling. Previously, the court ordered the regulator to turn over some documents, including a draft of William Hinman’s infamous Ethereum speech, which, according to the SEC, was protected by the DPP. The judge, however, opined that the personal views of the agency’s staff were not shielded by the privilege, defining the emails as “neither pre-decisional nor deliberative.”

Cardano’s annual interest rate spikes to 54% as Binance is running short on supply
Binance, one of the world’s biggest crypto exchanges, is craving additional supply of Cardano as investors are moving the coin away from exchanges and using it in alternative decentralized solutions and wallets. In case the exchange runs short, Binance uses various techniques to attract more funds to their wallets, such as offering a relatively high interest rate (54%) for anyone who deposits their ADA coins. As more traders and investors deposit their Cardano on the platform, the interest rate will slowly get down to an average value, stabilizing Binance’s supply of ADA.
