SEC lawsuit causes serial delisting of XRP

This massive hiring campaign is launched amidst the unprecedented troubles of Ripple Inc. and XRP token. As covered by CryptoComes in an ongoing story, Ripple and its key officers, Brad Garlinghouse and Chris Larsen, are accused by the U.S. SEC of offering illegal securities in the form of XRP tokens.

The amount of illegal XRP sell-offs may surpass $1.2 billion. Shortly after the accusations were published, Ripple's major partner Moneygram explicitly denied any usage of Ripple's ODL and RippleNet to transfer users' funds.

As a result, top-tier exchanges started announcing the termination of XRP trading. Coinbase, Bitstamp, OKCoin and are the first platforms from the premier league to get rid of XRP processing.
