Members of the XRP Army — supporters of XRP have started an online movement to pressure some Crypto exchanges to relist the XRP amid Ripple facing a lawsuit from the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

Supporters of XRP are momentarily placing their bullish bets on XRP as Jeremy Hogan, a lawyer that understands the ongoing event, at the U.S court revealed Judge Sarah Netburn handling the XRP case saw it more as a currency than security.

“My understanding about XRP is that not only does it have a currency value but it has a utility, and that utility distinguishes it from bitcoin and ether,” the judge said, according to Hogan.

At the time of writing this report, the seventh most valuable crypto traded at $0.573704 with a daily trading volume of over $11 billion.  XRP is up 11.21% for the day.

The fast-rising crypto currently has a market value currently at about $26 billion. It has a circulating supply of 45.4 billion XRP coins and a maximum supply of 100 billion XRP coins.

Recall some months ago some leading Crypto exchanges including Coinbase, OKCoin, Coinbase, Bittrex, Bitstamp, OSL, CrossTower, and Beaxy cut ties with XRP, thereby dampening market liquidity in the XRP market as the crypto exchanges listed above announced that they would suspend trading of XRP, while others will delist XRP entirely.

In a court document recently filed by Ripple some days ago, the word “denies” comes up about 440 times as Ripple refutes the SEC’s allegation that the fintech engaged in an illegal initial coin offering when they first issued XRP to investors.

“Ripple denies it engaged in any offering of securities; denies the inaccurate characterization of the legal advice Ripple received regarding XRP; and denies that it engaged in a single ‘offering’ of XRP.”

Such gains will surely calm the nerves of many XRP investors disturbed by the ongoing legal tussle between Ripple and a powerful financial regulator.

Ripple’s XRP is often tagged as the “remittance network” and currency exchange that independent servers authenticate. The crypto is known as XRP and transfer times are super-fast.

Ripple (XRP) plays dual roles as a payment platform and a currency. The platform is an open-source platform that was created to allow quick and cheap transactions.

    ABCON asks CBN to check impact of cryptocurrencies on diaspora remittances

    The association also noted that the apex bank needs to address other issues driving the patronage of cryptocurrency exchanges for remittance transfers.

    ABCON disagrees with those calling for naira devaluation

    The Association of Bureau De Change Operators of Nigeria (ABCON) has asked the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) to introduce measures that will neutralize the positive effects of cryptocurrencies as a channel for diaspora remittances.

    This is to redirect diaspora remittances away from cryptocurrency exchanges to official channels and also protect such against potential disruptions.

    This call was made by ABCON during its Quarterly Economic Review for the first quarter of 2021 where it commended the CBN for the N5/$ rebate scheme introduced to encourage diaspora Nigerians to use official channels to remit their funds.

    However, the association noted that the apex bank needs to address other issues driving the patronage of cryptocurrency exchanges for remittance transfers.

    What ABCON is saying in their statement

    The association in its statement said, “It is noteworthy that public acceptability for cryptocurrency exchanges are rising which could be quite accountable for the wide drop in diaspora inflows to Nigeria. Insecurity in the country is giving it greater prominence as investors and citizens are finding Cryptocurrency a safe haven for their wealth in case of any eventuality.

    In most Emerging Markets Bitcoin transfers surged last year, as the pandemic exposed the cheaper and more efficient digital remittance services. Migrants sending money across borders to their families prefer the minimal transaction costs of cryptocurrency exchanges against the exorbitant costs of traditional money transfer companies like Western Union.”

    According to ABCON, “Cryptocurrency transactions are faster than the conventional transfers, which require passing through banks reliant SWIFT, the sluggish, half-century-old interbank messaging system that handles cross-border payments.

    These exchanges override the political complications of official channels. The global reach of cryptocurrencies avoids the inflation risk inherent to official currencies, especially in politically unstable countries reliant on fickle foreign investors.

    Thus, while we commend the efforts of CBN in introducing the package of Five Naira for One Dollar transfer, it can be seen from the analysis above that the challenges exceed just non-payment of foreign currency by the IMTCs and the exchange rate. Strategies that satisfy the most sensitive of these advantages of Cryptocurrency exchanges must be introduced to redirect flows to the official channel.”

    ABCON also expressed concerns over the country’s huge unemployment rate, urging the government to apply radical approaches with the use of both conventional and unconventional economic and political tools to redress the trend.
