This hasn’t aged well over the last 5 weeks. Not only is XRP not a dead coin walking but a judge found that the XRP token itself is not a security. Bitcoin no longer has a monopoly on clarity. Oh no! https://t.co/5QBRS2AYlM

Max Keiser on XRP
Max Keiser has consistently criticized XRP, claiming that it is a “dead coin walking.” But Morgan, a prominent lawyer within the XRP community, responded to Keiser’s remark in a recent tweet. He pointed out that XRP is not only alive and well but also gained regulatory clarity through Ripple’s victory against the SEC. Morgan mockingly stated that Bitcoin no longer holds a monopoly on regulatory clarity.
Keiser’s controversial remarks on XRP came just days before the court’s verdict in the SEC v. Ripple lawsuit. He suggested that despite efforts from John Deaton, the founder of CryptoLaw, XRP would likely be classified as a security. Keiser’s pessimistic outlook on altcoins remains unchanged, as he believes that SEC Chair Gary Gensler will continue to oppose XRP, Ethereum, and other altcoins.
In response to a report where Deaton referred to the SEC as a “protection racket,” the government Bitcoin advisor of El Salvador made a bold statement. Keiser urged the El Salvador government to prioritize Bitcoin mining, as the leading cryptocurrency enjoys legal protection.
It’s worth noting that aside from XRP, the SEC has classified various altcoins as securities. Cardano (ADA) and Algorand (ALGO) were recently identified as such in a court filing against Binance.
Morgan’s response to Keiser’s criticism highlights the growing recognition and acceptance of XRP in the United States. With Ripple’s victory against the SEC and the regulatory clarity surrounding XRP, it is clear that the future of the token is promising. While Keiser remains skeptical, it seems that XRP’s path to success is becoming more secure.
