&lt;title&gt;XRP‌ ‌price plunges‌ ‌21%‌ ‌in‌ ‌two days as SEC targets Ripple — What’s‌ ‌next?‌ ‌&lt;/title&gt;
&lt;link&gt;https://cointelegraph.com/news/xrp-price-plunges-21-in-two-days-as-sec-targets-ripple-what-s-next
&lt;guid ispermalink=”false”&gt;https://cointelegraph.com/news/xrp-price-plunges-21-in-two-days-as-sec-targets-ripple-what-s-next&lt;/guid&gt;
&lt;description&gt;&amp;lt;p&amp;gt;&amp;lt;a href=”https://cointelegraph.com/xrp-price-index”&amp;gt;XRP&amp;lt;/a&amp;gt; price declined by 21% in two days on Coinbase from $0.5695 to $0.4491. The drop was accelerated by reports on Dec. 22 that the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC)’s &amp;lt;a href=”https://cointelegraph.com/news/sec-set-to-sue-ripple-with-xrp-in-the-crosshairs”&amp;gt;is preparing a lawsuit against Ripple&amp;lt;/a&amp;gt;.&amp;lt;/p&amp;gt;&amp;lt;p&amp;gt;Brad Garlinghouse, the CEO of Ripple, said the SEC “voted to attack crypto,” citing a &amp;lt;em&amp;gt;Fortune&amp;lt;/em&amp;gt; &amp;lt;a href=”https://fortune.com/2020/12/21/ripple-to-be-sued-by-sec-cryptocurrency-xrp/” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener nofollow”&amp;gt;article&amp;lt;/a&amp;gt;. He &amp;lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/bgarlinghouse/status/1341193536780214273″ target=”_blank” rel=”noopener nofollow”&amp;gt;wrote&amp;lt;/a&amp;gt;:&amp;lt;/p&amp;gt;&amp;lt;blockquote&amp;gt;“Today, the SEC voted to attack crypto. Chairman Jay Clayton – in his final act – is picking winners and trying to limit US innovation in the crypto industry to BTC and ETH. We know crypto and blockchain technologies aren’t going anywhere. Ripple has and will continue to use XRP because it is the best digital asset for payments – speed, cost, scalability and energy efficiency. It’s traded on 200+ exchanges globally and will continue to thrive.”&amp;lt;/blockquote&amp;gt;&amp;lt;p&amp;gt;XRP price fell by roughly 13% following Garlinghouse’s tweet as some industry executives &amp;lt;a href=”https://cointelegraph.com/news/sec-set-to-sue-ripple-with-xrp-in-the-crosshairs”&amp;gt;expressed concerns about the situation.&amp;lt;/a&amp;gt;&amp;lt;/p&amp;gt;&amp;lt;p&amp;gt;Meanwhile, cryptocurrency traders are mixed about where XRP is headed next. Some say that it might not have an immense impact on the price as Ripple &amp;lt;a href=”https://cointelegraph.com/news/crushing-regulations-could-drive-ripple-out-of-us”&amp;gt;faced regulatory hurdles before&amp;lt;/a&amp;gt;. Others believe XRP could continue to stagnate as a result.&amp;lt;/p&amp;gt;&amp;lt;figure&amp;gt;&amp;lt;img src=”https://s3.cointelegraph.com/uploads/2020-12/1fb3414e-e17c-459e-96f0-cfdbf23e4147.png” alt title&amp;gt;&amp;lt;figcaption&amp;gt;&amp;lt;em&amp;gt;The 1-hour XRP price chart (Coinbase). Source: TradingView.com&amp;lt;/em&amp;gt;&amp;lt;/figcaption&amp;gt;&amp;lt;/figure&amp;gt;&amp;lt;h2&amp;gt;Ripple’s situation is different from Block.one, says lawyer&amp;lt;/h2&amp;gt;&amp;lt;p&amp;gt;One of the main discussion points of the reported lawsuit against Ripple by the SEC is the difference between Ripple and Block.one.&amp;lt;/p&amp;gt;&amp;lt;p&amp;gt;Block.one, the company behind the EOS ecosystem, &amp;lt;a href=”https://cointelegraph.com/news/blockone-slapped-with-24m-fine-cost-of-doing-business”&amp;gt;settled with the SEC&amp;lt;/a&amp;gt;&amp;amp;nbsp;for $24 million before there was active litigation.&amp;lt;/p&amp;gt;&amp;lt;p&amp;gt;Since Ripple expects to deal with active litigation, the dealings between Block.one and the SEC are different from Ripple’s case. Jake Chervinsky, a general counsel at Compound Finance, &amp;lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/jchervinsky/status/1341199482747314177″ target=”_blank” rel=”noopener nofollow”&amp;gt;said&amp;lt;/a&amp;gt;:&amp;lt;/p&amp;gt;&amp;lt;blockquote&amp;gt;“No. The EOS action only dealt with the EOS ERC-20 token on Ethereum, not the EOS native token on the EOS blockchain. Block[dot]one settled without active litigation, &amp;amp;amp; by then, the ERC-20 token was no longer trading. Here, SEC will allege an actively-traded token is a security.”&amp;lt;/blockquote&amp;gt;&amp;lt;p&amp;gt;Chervinsky also raised the possibility of centralized exchanges temporarily delisting XRP while the case is pending. Since there is no historical precedence for this type of regulatory conflict, this remains uncertain. He wrote:&amp;lt;/p&amp;gt;&amp;lt;blockquote&amp;gt;“We’ll have plenty of time to talk about the merits of the SEC’s Ripple enforcement action after the complaint comes out. Right now, the big question is if centralized exchanges delist XRP while the case is pending. I bet a lot of lawyers are setting emergency calls right now.”&amp;lt;/blockquote&amp;gt;&amp;lt;p&amp;gt;Immediately after the news broke, the social media volume for the keyword “XRP” surged, &amp;lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/santimentfeed/status/1341324253505851392?s=20″ target=”_blank” rel=”noopener nofollow”&amp;gt;according&amp;lt;/a&amp;gt; to analysts at Santiment.&amp;lt;/p&amp;gt;&amp;lt;h2&amp;gt;What happens to the XRP price now?&amp;lt;/h2&amp;gt;&amp;lt;p&amp;gt;XRP price rallied strongly throughout November, &amp;lt;a href=”https://cointelegraph.com/news/xrp-price-will-the-flare-network-airdrop-trigger-a-rally-to-1-00″&amp;gt;breaking a multi-year downtrend&amp;lt;/a&amp;gt;, as the Bitcoin price (&amp;lt;a href=”https://cointelegraph.com/bitcoin-price-index”&amp;gt;BTC&amp;lt;/a&amp;gt;) surpassed $18,000. At the time, XRP saw &amp;lt;a href=”https://cointelegraph.com/news/xrp-price-spikes-to-0-90-crashes-in-seconds-as-coinbase-goes-down”&amp;gt;an impulse rally on Coinbase&amp;lt;/a&amp;gt;, seeing a brief fear of missing out (FOMO) uptrend in the U.S. market.&amp;lt;/p&amp;gt;&amp;lt;p&amp;gt;Trader and Cointelegraph Markets analyst, Michael van de Poppe, emphasized that after a massive impulse wave, a heavy retracement is likely. He &amp;lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/CryptoMichNL/status/1341326363010224131?s=20″ target=”_blank” rel=”noopener nofollow”&amp;gt;explained&amp;lt;/a&amp;gt;:&amp;lt;/p&amp;gt;&amp;lt;blockquote&amp;gt;”XRP looking for further correction as it tests the $0.45 range for the third time, while consistently making lower highs. Very natural to see less volatility &amp;amp;amp; a correction after such an impulse wave.”&amp;lt;/blockquote&amp;gt;&amp;lt;p&amp;gt;Some traders, however, say that after this pullback, XRP may consolidate and that the lawsuit could turn out to be a “nothing-burger.”&amp;lt;/p&amp;gt;&amp;lt;figure&amp;gt;&amp;lt;img src=”https://s3.cointelegraph.com/uploads/2020-12/d25b13b1-45b1-49c5-bf09-3e9143ae14d5.jpg”&amp;gt;&amp;lt;figcaption&amp;gt;&amp;lt;em&amp;gt;7-day XRP price sentiment. Source: TheTie.io&amp;lt;/em&amp;gt;&amp;lt;/figcaption&amp;gt;&amp;lt;/figure&amp;gt;&amp;lt;p&amp;gt;Meanwhile, other traders&amp;amp;nbsp;&amp;lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/CryptoNekoZ/status/1341217903912263680″ target=”_blank” rel=”noopener nofollow”&amp;gt;argue&amp;lt;/a&amp;gt; that the heavy-hitting approach of regulators could amplify the negative market sentiment around XRP and push the price down further. As the chart above shows, the sentiment around XRP hit fresh lows as news of the SEC lawsuit was revealed.&amp;lt;/p&amp;gt;&amp;lt;template data-name=”subscription_form” data-type=”markets_outlook”&amp;gt;&amp;lt;/template&amp;gt;&amp;lt;p&amp;gt;&amp;lt;strong&amp;gt;&amp;lt;a href=”https://blockads.fivefilters.org”&amp;gt;&amp;lt;/a&amp;gt;&amp;lt;/strong&amp;gt; &amp;lt;a href=”https://blockads.fivefilters.org/acceptable.html”&amp;gt;(Why?)&amp;lt;/a&amp;gt;&amp;lt;/p&amp;gt;&lt;/description&gt;

Trusts are companies tasked with managing assets for a group of owners or investors. Grayscale’s trusts use this structure to &amp;lt;a href=”https://cointelegraph.com/news/grayscale-now-has-half-a-million-bitcoin”&amp;gt;offer cryptocurrency exposure within traditional markets&amp;lt;/a&amp;gt;.&amp;lt;/p&amp;gt;&amp;lt;p&amp;gt;According to a Dec. 22 &amp;lt;a href=”https://www1.hkexnews.hk/listedco/listconews/sehk/2020/1222/2020122200498.pdf” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener nofollow”&amp;gt;announcement&amp;lt;/a&amp;gt; by Huobi Technology Holdings, the company’s Nevada-incorporated business Huobi Trust has received a Trust Company License from the Financial Institutions Division of the Department of Business and Industry in Nevada.&amp;lt;/p&amp;gt;&amp;lt;p&amp;gt;Lan Jianzhong, executive director of Huobi, noted that Huobi Trust has not yet started providing any related trust services. “Shareholders and potential investors are advised to exercise caution when dealing in the shares of the Company,” Jianzhong wrote in the announcement.&amp;lt;/p&amp;gt;&amp;lt;p&amp;gt;Huobi did not immediately respond to Cointelegraph’s request to provide additional information about the development.&amp;lt;/p&amp;gt;&amp;lt;p&amp;gt;Huobi US, or HBUS, the operator of United States-based crypto exchange Huobi, &amp;lt;a href=”https://cointelegraph.com/news/huobis-us-based-crypto-trading-platform-hbus-ceases-operations”&amp;gt;officially ceased&amp;lt;/a&amp;gt; operations in December 2019. The move came shortly after Huobi Global announced that it would &amp;lt;a href=”https://cointelegraph.com/news/huobis-us-based-crypto-trading-platform-hbus-ceases-operations”&amp;gt;freeze all U.S. client accounts&amp;lt;/a&amp;gt; by mid-November. The exchange said that the event was caused by issues related to American regulatory ecosystem.&amp;lt;/p&amp;gt;&amp;lt;p&amp;gt;The exchange has been putting effort into tapping new markets over the world in recent years. In November 2020, Huobi Global, Huobi Group’s flagship crypto exchange headquartered in Singapore, announced a new entity Huobi Labuan to &amp;lt;a href=”https://cointelegraph.com/news/huobi-launches-regulated-crypto-exchange-in-malaysia”&amp;gt;launch trading services in Malaysia&amp;lt;/a&amp;gt;. In August, Huobi announced a wide array of measures to &amp;lt;a href=”https://cointelegraph.com/news/huobi-global-announces-measures-to-strengthen-its-presence-in-russia”&amp;gt;expand its presence in Russia&amp;lt;/a&amp;gt;.&amp;lt;/p&amp;gt;&amp;lt;template data-name=”subscription_form” data-type=”markets_outlook”&amp;gt;&amp;lt;/template&amp;gt;&amp;lt;p&amp;gt;&amp;lt;strong&amp;gt;&amp;lt;a href=”https://blockads.fivefilters.org”&amp;gt;&amp;lt;/a&amp;gt;&amp;lt;/strong&amp;gt; &amp;lt;a href=”https://blockads.fivefilters.org/acceptable.html”&amp;gt;(Why?)&amp;lt;/a&amp;gt;&amp;lt;/p&amp;gt;&lt;/description&gt;

&lt;title&gt;Coinbase seeks extended feedback deadline to FinCEN’s new crypto rules&lt;/title&gt;

&lt;description&gt;&amp;lt;div&amp;gt;&amp;lt;img src=”https://s3.cointelegraph.com/uploads/2020-12/00e3a0b7-e7d2-4e7e-942a-6b4b3bc9f3f0.jpg” class=”ff-og-image-inserted”&amp;gt;&amp;lt;/div&amp;gt;&amp;lt;p&amp;gt;Coinbase, one of the largest cryptocurrency exchanges in the United States, is advocating extension for the industry’s feedback deadline to newly proposed crypto rules by the Treasury’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, or FinCEN.&amp;lt;/p&amp;gt;&amp;lt;p&amp;gt;In a Dec. 21 &amp;lt;a href=”https://blog.coinbase.com/coinbases-response-to-recent-proposed-rulemaking-from-the-u-s-treasury-and-fincen-109dd7477d31″ target=”_blank” rel=”noopener nofollow”&amp;gt;blog post&amp;lt;/a&amp;gt;, Coinbase’s chief legal officer Paul Grewal addressed&amp;amp;nbsp;&amp;lt;a href=”https://cointelegraph.com/news/it-s-here-treasury-announces-whitelist-rules-to-shut-off-money-to-self-hosted-wallets”&amp;gt;FinCEN’s newly released rulemaking&amp;lt;/a&amp;gt; regarding self-hosted crypto wallets. The blog post represents an open letter to Kenneth Blanco, the director of FinCEN.&amp;lt;/p&amp;gt;&amp;lt;p&amp;gt;In the letter, Grewal considered the new rules by the Treasury’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, as an “unfortunate and disappointing departure” from the company’s long-running relationship with the regulator.&amp;lt;/p&amp;gt;&amp;lt;p&amp;gt;Grewal elaborated that the 15-day period granted by FinCEN to the industry to respond to the new rules is not enough, especially given that it is spanning Christmas holidays and comes amid the COVID-19 pandemic:&amp;lt;/p&amp;gt;&amp;lt;blockquote&amp;gt;“FinCEN asked the public to provide comments in just 15 days, spanning Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve, and New Year’s Day, in the middle of a global pandemic — leaving just a handful of actual working days for comments.”&amp;lt;/blockquote&amp;gt;&amp;lt;p&amp;gt;As such, Coinbase’s legal executive asked FinCEN to “reconsider its haste” and provide a typical 60-day period notice-and-comment for the proposed rulemaking. Grewal noted that 60-day comment periods to regulations represent an ordinary practice by FinCEN in terms of the traditional financial industry. “For example, FinCEN’s Customer Due Diligence Requirements for Financial Institutions provided the traditional 60 days for notice and comment,” Grewal noted.&amp;lt;/p&amp;gt;&amp;lt;p&amp;gt;The exec went on to say that an extended notice-and-comment period will provide the industry with a “true opportunity to engage in the review and comment process with respect to the proposed rule as the law requires.” Grewal wrote:&amp;lt;/p&amp;gt;&amp;lt;blockquote&amp;gt;“There is no emergency here […] There is also no justification for treating the cryptocurrency industry so differently from our counterparts in traditional finance. […] The same rationale applies even more so in the midst of a global pandemic.”&amp;lt;/blockquote&amp;gt;&amp;lt;p&amp;gt;Previously, major industry figures like Circle CEO Jeremy Allaire criticized the new rules, &amp;lt;a href=”https://cointelegraph.com/news/circle-ceo-joins-appeal-against-us-treasury-self-hosted-crypto-wallet-ban”&amp;gt;appealing for regulators to collaborate&amp;lt;/a&amp;gt; with the industry in adopting crypto regulations. Several members of Congress including representatives Warren Davidson and Tom Emmer also &amp;lt;a href=”https://cointelegraph.com/news/congresspeople-tell-treasury-to-back-off-of-rumored-self-hosted-wallet-ban”&amp;gt;opposed the rumored ban&amp;lt;/a&amp;gt; on self-hosted crypto wallets on Dec. 9.&amp;lt;/p&amp;gt;&amp;lt;p&amp;gt;&amp;lt;strong&amp;gt;&amp;lt;a href=”https://blockads.fivefilters.org”&amp;gt;&amp;lt;/a&amp;gt;&amp;lt;/strong&amp;gt; &amp;lt;a href=”https://blockads.fivefilters.org/acceptable.html”&amp;gt;(Why?)&amp;lt;/a&amp;gt;&amp;lt;/p&amp;gt;&lt;/description&gt;
