Apparently, Ripple is looking for people to fill up management and director positions for various departments. Interestingly, some of these positions opened up after the SEC filed a lawsuit against Ripple.
These hint that Ripple has no plans of closing shop despite taking heavy losses. From an upward momentum in December 2020, its native crypto XRP plunged to $0.20 after exchanges delisted it.
Meanwhile, XRP holders filed a petition on December 29, 2020 to the White House to consider XRP a cryptocurrency. The petition needs at least 61,690 signatures before January 28, 2021 for the petitioners to warrant a response. At the time of writing, over 38,310 have already signed the petition.
The petition wrote,
The SEC complaint is damaging to the holders of the currency XRP, and must cease immediately. The US Government has clearly given guidance, as established by FinCEN, that XRP is a currency.
Written by a person under the initials J.W., the petition said the SEC is “tasked to protect investors in US securities.” However, the Ripple lawsuit has caused US citizens to suffer “irreparable harm and damages”.
