I’m kind of confused as to what’s going on with the sec deciding if xrp is a security or not. From what I know they already declared it as a security? 

From what I know an SEC official stated *as his personal opinion*, that BTC and ETH were not securities. No official statement from the SEC has been made on XRP or any other crypto. They have also stated the personal opinion was just that and no decision has been reached.

If XRP is a security then it better win some sort of a medal for the weirdest security out there. Ripple had their best year partnership and probably financially wise while XRP lost 80-90% of its valu

From what I know the sec doesn’t matter and it’s not a security. thread closed

second part of that statement is not true. nobody from the SEC has ever indicated a decision is pending about the status of XRP.

Sorry for the poor wording. I didn't mean to imply a decision is pending. The SEC hasn't officially indicated, to my knowledge, anything at all about securities classifications of crypto.

Thanks for catching that.

Still, a lot of their revenue come from the sale of xrp no matter what the price is.

True. But this is just an asset on their books. They have quite a lot of it so obviously as any sane company they are trying to develop an ecosystem around it. They could have gold, oil on their books as well, doesn't make those things securities. Coinbase for example has a massive amount of BTC and I'm pretty sure a huge chunk of their revenue comes from selling BTC (obviously they don't publicly disclose this as Ripple do, but still) - does that make BTC a security? No.
