Ripple receives access to SEC documents
The team of the Ripple project has received access to documents of the SEC. The developers of the project plan to appeal and prove the lack of any difference between the Ripple chain's XRP token and such popular cryptocurrencies as Bitcoin and Ethereum. The team is confident that the specialists of the commission at the SEC misinterpreted and erroneously drafted the status of the cryptocurrency. The development team has repeatedly stated that XRP is not a security and that the SEC commission's claims otherwise are unfounded.
