Of course it isn’t anymore a security than Bitcoin is a security or the US dollar is one. Plus, who cares. This discussion is as relevant as whether a website is a newspaper or not. The only reason this has been debated for a year is because Bitcoin whales like the Winklevoss twins were hoping that the US goverment would shoot their biggest competitor in the kneecaps, and hand crypto on a silver platter to China. That’s not going to happen. The US is not going to kill their next Google.

David Schwartz just spoke at the SXSW conference in Austin, Texas. He argued that XRP is not a security. This article explains more.


Do you think it is a security or not? Let me know in the comments below.

Solid article outlining the history of XRP, which should help with providing perspective on why XRP is likely not a security based on recent statements from the SEC.
