The spokesperson further said that Ripple is growing sharply even during the ongoing disorder in the crypto market. Therefore, it is looking for mergers & acquisitions deals with an aim of scaling the company.
In June, Celsius froze withdrawals and blamed the market conditions after which it filed for bankruptcy, listing a $1.19 billion shortage.
During the past week, lawyers of Ripple submitted filings to be shown in the proceedings. The filings have been approved by the court this week.
Responding to queries based on the court filings, Ripple clarified not being the major creditor of Celsius.
Ripple has never been a part of any major deals. In the second quarter, its overall sales of XRP were $408.9 million as compared to the first quarter, when the figure was $273.27 million.
