XRP Token’s Market Valuation Soars, Nearly Doubling Nvidia’s Despite Legal Hurdles

The XRP token, with a price-to-sales ratio of 61.689, stands out for its valuation nearly double that of Nvidia’s ratio of 37, reflecting a stark contrast in the investment attractiveness of these two entities.

This metric, which offers insight by dividing market capitalization by total sales over the last year, positions XRP in a unique light compared to Nvidia, one of the most actively traded stocks.

In 2023, the Ripple XRP ledger saw over $583,000 in network fees, as reported by Messari.

In stark contrast, Nvidia’s revenue reached $26.97 billion, as highlighted in its fiscal report for the same year.

Despite these differences, the XRP token experienced a slight increase of 0.15% in its price to $0.6205, boasting a market capitalization of $34 billion, per CoinMarketCap.

Meanwhile, Nvidia’s shares saw a slight decline of 0.49% in pre-market trading, setting its price at $898.25, based on Yahoo Finance data.

Nvidia, standing as the top semiconductor chip manufacturer globally and the third-largest company by market cap at $2.25 trillion, reported a significant 265% revenue increase year-on-year.

This surge is attributed to the escalating demand for artificial intelligence (AI) equipment globally.

The XRP token, on the other hand, marked a 20.55% price increase over the past year. Nvidia’s shares soared by over 241%, driven by the heightened demand for semiconductor chips essential for advanced AI models.

However, XRP’s growth faces challenges, notably the lawsuit initiated by the SEC in December 2020 against Ripple, alleging unregistered securities offerings through XRP sales.

The legal landscape for XRP saw a notable development in July 2023, with Judge Analisa Torres ruling that XRP is not a security, except when sold to institutional investors.

This nuanced legal stance stems from the Howey test criteria.

In a March 25 court filing, the SEC proposed a $1.95 billion civil penalty against Ripple for its alleged defiance of the law regarding XRP sales, underscoring the ongoing legal challenges that Ripple faces.
