It is noteworthy that the day before, XRP was the growth leader among the top 100 cryptocurrencies by capitalization, adding almost 40% in less than a day. The growth took place against the background of the appointment of a new head of the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Elad Roizman. However, Bloomberg already predicts that with the coming to power of Joe Biden (to be held in January 2021), Roizman will be replaced by a candidate loyal to the Democrats.
