Ripple’s Anticipated IPO Timeline: A Cautionary Perspective

Renowned figure in the XRP community, Crypto Eri, recently took to Twitter to provide clarification on the anticipated timeline for Ripple’s eagerly awaited initial public offering (IPO).

In the tweet, Eri referenced comments made by Dushyant Shahrawat, Director of FinTech Investment Banking at Rosenblatt Securities, regarding the Ripple IPO. Shahrawat discussed the lackluster performance of prominent financial technology (fintech) companies in both private and public markets. He drew attention to the decline in stock prices of well-known firms and the valuation challenges faced by private companies.

Shahrawat argued that the underperformance of fintech companies could impact investment decisions at various stages of development, affecting both early-stage firms and late-stage unicorns.

Expressing concern, Shahrawat suggested that the struggles of key players in the fintech sector might have wider implications, potentially influencing the market trajectory of other private fintech companies, especially those contemplating going public.

He stated, “So all of the non-public fintech firms and unicorns that had been ready within the wings to go public, that time-frame has been pushed again a bit .”

When asked whether this situation similarly affects the cryptocurrency space, Shahrawat affirmed, citing examples such as Ripple and USD Coin (USDC) issuer Circle. Earlier this month, reports surfaced that Circle might pursue an IPO, mirroring Ripple’s potential move.

Crypto Eri, building on Shahrawat’s insights, seeks to emphasize that the expected Ripple IPO may not materialize as quickly as some members of the XRP community speculate, given the current bearish trend in the fintech landscape. Notably, this comes amid widespread suggestions within the XRP community that the Ripple IPO might take place in early 2024.

In a previous cautionary statement earlier this month, Crypto Eri urged prudence when discussing the potential Ripple IPO, drawing comparisons with similar companies. She highlighted the broader sentiment regarding IPOs in the financial market and pointed to companies that have postponed initially announced IPO dates in response to the current market conditions.
