    1/14: @JoelKatz video about CBDCs and NFTs set off a lightbulb for me – and I think he revealed something very important that will dispel the false narrative that Ripple’s CBDC plan does not use XRP. Also, I think finally figured out what the term “flip the switch” means.

As for a news story related to Ripple getting some buzz:

In The Ripple Case, The SEC Is Now On Trial – And Knows It

This familiar story is playing out in the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission’s (SEC) lawsuit against cryptocurrency innovator Ripple, but the buck stops with Magistrate Judge Sarah Netburn whose discovery hearing in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York on Tuesday exposed the SEC’s unfounded and flawed arguments and some inconvenient truths for former SEC Chair Jay Clayton and former SEC Corporation Finance Division head William Hinman….  The hearing showed that the case the San Francisco fintech was based on an illogical premise. It alleged that XRP, the digital currency that Ripple uses for cross-border payments, has been an unregistered security since 2013 and that the SEC was just getting around to saying so on the last day of Clayton’s tenure last December. With this late in the game regulatory determination, the SEC now deems that every Ripple sale for seven years was an illegal securities trade….Back to Judge Netburn’s courtroom. Ripple requested the internal documentation to explain how and why the SEC arrived at their pronouncements as well as silence on these various coins. The SEC responded that nothing that was ever said by Clayton, Hinman or any SEC official about bitcoin or ether was that was an “official determination” on whether they are securities. It appears that Netburn is not buying the SEC’s argument that their many statements were not material.
