In December 2020, the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) accused Ripple of selling unregistered securities in the form of XRP for $ 1.3 billion.
Against this backdrop, some large platforms and companies have refused to support the token. Among them are Galaxy Digital, Bitstamp, B2C2, Coinbase and OKCoin.
In March 2021, the regulator said that exchanges are not breaking the rules by selling XRP. Later, the head of Ripple, Brad Garlinghouse, noted that he expects to discuss the status of the token with Gary Gensler after his appointment as chairman of the SEC.
On April 3, attorney James Filan announced that an agreement had been reached between Ripple and the SEC regarding the company’s documents. The department refused to thoroughly check two of the four emails.

Recall that Garlinghouse said that Ripple will offer the market a product alternative to the XRP token if it loses in the lawsuit.
