Most of the altcoins are dropping in the market. This could indicate the start of a bear market, which won’t be good news for investors. Although, this will allow potential HODLers to seep in and gather BTC, or any other asset they have in mind.
The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission [the SEC] is yet to roll out an informed decision with regards to XRP being a security token or not. This ruling is bound to cause XRP to gain some momentum, if it is in the favor of Ripple. Although, the boost if incoming might be short-lived, as more coins will then be released from the pre-mined supply.
Alot of turmoil again about #XRP being a security or not!? I can almost ‘promise’ you it’s not, because the SEC already stated:
1. “Tokens sold for use in a functioning network, rather than as investment contracts, fall outside the definition of securities.”
