  • From HigherManas:

    #XRP cooling off and consolidating before next level up. Well, that’s what most normal coins do in a bull market. The next 24 hours will tell us if XRP has broken out of its SEC funk. I believe it has and we’re going to see more upward movement momentarily. 🚀🚀

  • From xrp_mami:

    I love how sure people are that $XRP can’t reach 4-5 digits. Imagine the folks who believed BTC would never hit $1 when it was trading sub penny. When you’re counting on speculation the supply may matter. With utility. That’s a whole different beast. Know what you HODL.

  • From Kevin_Cage_:

    I’ll never comprehend why people are so afraid of the possibility of a “flash crash” for $XRPIf that ever happens again, I’ll just buy all of it.Why would you sell at a low? It’ll bounce back past ATH eventually.The game is simple. It just takes patience.

SEC Update — Preliminary Ripple Response | Ripple

The “Answer” is a legal document (filed publicly) which, as the name suggests, is our official answer to the allegations in the SEC’s complaint….With its complaint, the SEC is asking the Court to contradict the findings of the agency’s peers in the US and worldwide.  Although XRP is the most efficient digital asset for global payments benefiting consumers around the world (and is the most environmentally sustainable crypto), there is no principled distinction between XRP’s current function and that of BTC or ETH….How does the SEC explain telling the public that BTC and ETH are not securities, then turning around and alleging the opposite is true for XRP?
