XRP falls sharply – Crypto company Ripple is expected to be sued by the SEC
The crypto company Ripple has stated that they are expected to be sued by the US SEC over allegations of shortcomings in investor protection. CNBC reports.
Ripple is strongly associated with the XRP cryptocurrency, which is falling over 15 percent as a result of the news.
According to Ripple, the SEC claims that the company violated laws to sell unregistered securities when they sold XRP to investors, but CEO Brad Garlinghouse believes that this is completely wrong as XRP is a currency and not a security.
XRP’s total market capitalization is $ 20.9 billion, compared to Bitcoin’s $ 420 billion.
