    Ripple Wins First Salvo in California-Based Court Case

The original lawsuit was first initiatedby XRP investor Ryan Coffey in a San Francisco court on May 3, 2018, claiming that he lost $551.89 while trading XRP tokens. The class action was filed by law firm Taylor-Copeland, alleging that Ripple sold XRP tokensin violation of both the U.S. the Securities Act and the California Corporations Code. The plaintiff also claimed that XRP is not genuinely decentralized. According to court documents, the plaintiff failed to show whether the presence of a Securities Act issue was sufficient to bar the defendant from removing an action under the Class Action Fairness Act. In the ruling the court found that, “The parties candidly admit that their research failed to turn up any case directly addressing this question and the court’s own research fared no better.”

    Ripple Release New Advice For XRP Investors

    The suggested reading is interesting in that it came from Ripple
  12. https://cryptodaily.co.uk/2018/07/ripple-release-new-advice-for-xrp-investors/ According to Ripple: “The importance of deploying blockchain for real use-cases requires a deeper knowledge of the history of the technology itself together with broader business and economic know how to get the job done.” The latest books recommended by Ripple are as follows: “The Truth Machine: The Blockchain and the Future of Everything by Paul Vigna and Michael J. Casey is a deep dive into blockchain technology. Vigna and Casey go all the way back to the Middle Ages, to provide context on why the technology has so much potential.” “The Innovator’s Dilemma: The Revolutionary Book that Will Change the Way You Do Business by Clayton M. Christensen provides a thoughtful outline of why every company, even those that develop new technology must be aware of its applications and limitation, especially when it’s time to move on.” “Matchmakers: The New Economics of Multisided Platforms by David S. Evans and Richard Schmalensee is at the top of reading lists for top business leaders and entrepreneurs. The two economists break down the mechanics of what powers the business of the biggest players in the digital economy.” The included links will take you straight to Amazon, clearly Ripple’s venue of choice for purchasing books. Wait, is this a sign that Amazon could soon accept XRP? See more for yourself, here. So, there we have it. Some stellar advice from Ripple (pardon the pun). It might be difficult to find the time to read in this fast paced world, but as an XRP investor, or a blockchain enthusiast, if you find this time, you’ll benefit from better investments in the future. The more you understand about this industry, the more you’ll succeed.
