    As of today, if you owned #XRP, you could have additionally gained FLR, DFLR, & SGB, potentially drawing in value from LTC, DOGE, XLM, CSC, ADA, ALGO, BNB, CAKE, CEL, GALA, GTC, PAC, SANSHU, SHIB, TEL, USDC, USDT, XDC and even ETH, as well. That’s really quite astonishing.

    I have been homeless and only live to get high. Now 17 years later I make great money and it’s all thanks to God and when #XRP #CasinoCoin #XLM moon I want to give back and help as many people as I can get off drugs and off the streets. One day this dream will come true.

It is time for the US to create a ‘Ripple test’ for crypto

The SEC’s approach to crypto must be modified to more clearly articulate how securities laws should apply to digital assets….This general dissatisfaction with the Ripple case, often denigrated as “regulation by enforcement,” has led some to call for the development of a “Ripple test” to more clearly articulate how securities laws should apply to crypto assets….While it would probably take an act of Congress to encourage (or force) the SEC to move in this direction, a Ripple test adopting the utility token (or consumptive purpose) approach could have precluded the application of securities laws to Ripple’s XRP tokens….An alternative Ripple test could limit the scope of the SEC’s authority under the securities laws so that an interest determined by the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) to be a currency is not a security….Ripple and the change would clearly preclude the SEC’s decision to act against Ripple and its XRP token….However, the federal securities laws currently provide no statute of limitations on the right of the SEC to initiate enforcement actions.
