While the crypto space awaits the summary judgment on the case between the US SEC and Ripple Labs, controversies keep rising due to diverse user opinions and perspectives.

Keiser’s criticism of XRP came as a response to the tweet Ripple’s CTO David Schwartz posted. Schwartz who was reacting to the SEC’s regulatory stance on cryptocurrencies, had noted that the resolution of the SEC vs. Ripple lawsuit might impact the US crypto industry.

He considered the situation if the SEC’s legal position were to treat all crypto assets except Bitcoin as securities. According to Ripple’s CTO, US residents’ legal participation in the crypto space would become dicey if such a position holds. He also pointed out that Coinbase still engages in some token sales that the SEC considers securities to US residents.

In response to the post, the Bitcoin proponent Max Keiser stated that XRP’s legal position in El Salvador is under shitcoin. 

Usually, a digital asset would be referred to as a shitcoin if it has little or no value. This means the crypto asset was designed with questionable technology, has limited utility, has weak development teams, or operates with fraudulent goals.
