Tyler Winklevoss responded to the ‘stupid’ XRP trolls after they tagged the US SEC on Twitter to take action against the stock market.
Winklevoss explained that in this way the community recognized that the asset was a security – something that Ripple themselves denied.
The rift between the XRP community and the Winklevoss brothers began with the listing of ChainLink , the 14th largest cryptocurrency.
Meanwhile, XRP, which holds third place, is not yet listed on the platform. This fact upset many XRP loyalists.
Twitter user @ galgitron called on the SEC to investigate the Gemini exchange for refusing to add XRP.
The SEC’s Twitter tag is probably the last thing the XRP community would want given the two pending lawsuits against Ripple. Investors had decided to file a lawsuit against the company in 2018, accusing the company of selling unregistered securities.
A federal judge denied Ripple’s request to end the lawsuit.
Even if the company wins the case, the SEC can still classify the cryptocurrency as a security.
