SEC And Ripple Lawsuit Battle Leads Four Crypto Exchanges To Suspend Support For XRP




Ripple’s XRP is in deep hot waters as a total of five Crypto exchanges have either suspended or completely removed XRP trading from their platform.

B2C2, a major crypto market maker, has just recently paused XRP trading with its US counterpart platforms. B2C2 USA which launched last year stopped the trading of XRP last Thursday sighting the trouble legally challenged crypto coin (XRP) can bring to its platform.

Further, it is to be noted that non-US traders would still be able to trade with the coin but after pre-funding all the short positions.

On 22nd Dec Crosstower was the first one to officially remove XRP from their USA trading platform followed by OSL and Beaxy that delisted XRP from their platforms on 23rd of Dec following the revelation made by Ripple’s CEO Brad Garlinghouse in an interview to Fortune Magzine on which he disclosed that they are expecting of being sued by U.S. Security and Exchange Commission to which he declared “attack on all crypto“.

Then on 25th Bitstamp also paused the trading of XRP for US-based users. However, users of all exchanges would still be allowed to withdraw their XRP.

As giant crypto exchange Coinbase also considers its options, many top-notch crypto analysts are suggesting against investing in XRP.

Scott Melker, who has also been given the title of “wolf of all streets” compared “Enron” with “XRP”, as he tweeted “Trading XRP right now is the equivalent of buying Enron in 2001”.

In another tweet he Shockingly stated that when there are many lucrative coins in the market to trade with people are still “magically gravitating towards the one that is being publically sued by the SEC”.

Nevertheless, XRP did have declined by more than 50% in this month as at the beginning of the month it was traded at $0.60 but currently is trading at $0.29. But we must be seeing at XRP in the context of the whole year which started at a $0.20 price level and gained well more than 50% throughout the year. So there still is much more to come as far as XRP’s fate is concerned as the incoming new administration remains the major hope for them.
