XRP received sad news during the past week when Coinbase ditched the possibility of listing it all over again.
XRP comes right after Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) regarding market cap. According to Ripple Labs, XRP is an independent digital asset that’s standing apart from the company.
Ripple always explains the clarity of XRP’s status as a security. They say that a security is defined as an ownership share that needs to be registered.
Ripple’s Chief Market Strategist Cory Johnson stated “We absolutely are not a security. We don’t meet the standards for what a security is based on the history of court law.”
More lawsuits claim XRP is a security
There are three lawsuits against Ripple that are claiming the currency XRP is a security.
Christophe de Courson, CEO of Olymp Capital, a blockchain and digital asset investment company, believes that if the verdict goes against Ripple’s favor, then it’s not just the coin that will suffer but also all the affiliated corporate entities.
On the other hand, he also said that if the SEC states that XRP is indeed a security, then the token would suffer a massive blow since it is listed in all the major market exchanges except for Coinbase.
“…XRP is not needed when using xCurrent, the product that gives banks’ ability to move efficiently money across the border. xCurrent being the most used ripple’s product, I think that even if a classification of XRP as a security will be painful for Ripple, they could cope with it,” Courson said.
Today we are announcing that we’re exploring the addition of the following assets to Coinbase: Cardano (ADA), Basic Attention Token (BAT), Stellar Lumens (XLM), Zcash (ZEC) and 0x (ZRX). https://t.co/qoECyR0V1f
Ripple enthusiasts' feedback
More than this, Ripple Labs and its CEO will be held liable for illegally trading millions of dollars’ worth of securities, and this would be tragic.
The feedback is quite controversial with XRP investors responding to the news with positive and also negative thoughts.
