  • From xrp_mami:

    Idk who needs to hear this. But it doesn’t matter what the SEC and the court deems XRP. It’s a currency for the WORLD. And the WORLD (Japan and London to name a few) is ready to use it as such ASAP. Enough of this clarity talk. We already have it.

  • From jchervinsky:

    Gary Gensler deeply understands crypto & has strongly supported bitcoin for years. His selection as SEC chair signals a policy shift in favor of a bitcoin ETF.He also went on record in 2018 saying there’s “a strong case” that XRP is a security, signaling no shift on that issue.

  • From xrpartisan:

    I just gotta say, the #XRPCommunity is way more fun than the Bitcoin community. I think because we’re the underdogs we know how important it is to support each other and keep each other strong for the day we all believe is coming.Soldier on XRP Army! 🎖️#XRP $XRP
