More exchanges continue to delist XRP, the latest of which is Binance US. We have to be realistic that things are likely to get much worse for XRP before they get better. This will likely lead to an SEC compliant XRP, better Ripple reporting and procedures and market transparency.
If this goes the distance, digital asset trade as a whole in the United States will be better off. We will have legal precedent set for many issues. If a settlement is reached then XRP will join BTC and ETH as the only major digital assets with regulatory clarity in the US market. This will be an advantageous position. The catch: how long will it take?
