  • From cryptoWZRD_:

    Let me simplify it.. 1. The SEC came to the conclusion that BTC & ETH were not securities.
    2. Finding out how they came to that conclusion can be applied to other assets.
    3. They wanted to hide that so bad they fought.
    4. Brings question to bias against $XRP
    5. SEC exposed

  • From xrp_mami:

    No way does the @SEC_News want these docs public. They will settle lightning fast. If they show how they classified BTC & ETH and there was fowl play involved or the characteristics match $XRP. It’s fucking over. They won’t waste anymore time and money. Gensler for the dunk 🏀

  • From CredibleCrypto:

    @ShrekBTC Haha not yet but they won the battle. Ripple was demanding to see the communications between the SEC as to why they said BTC and ETH were not securities but XRP was. The SEC was trying to say these docs weren’t relevant and did not want to share. The judge ruled in Ripples favor.

Ensuring That Our Digital Future Is a Sustainable One | Ripple

A fully digital future is one that would instinctively rely on digital payment assets like cryptocurrency….XRP is fundamentally a much more sustainable asset than the likes of Bitcoin or Ethereum, only consuming a scant 0.0079 KWh of electricity per transaction.  A major reason why XRP is so much more sustainable than other cryptocurrency is that all XRP tokens currently exist, meaning no additional energy is required to make more of this asset….Put simply, a digital future that works for all must also be a sustainable future.
