The news that Coinbase is allowing users in New York to trade XRP once more is a big step forward for the cryptocurrency community.

Coinbase suspended token sales on January 19, 2021, in response to a lawsuit filed by the US SEC against Ripple Labs. Through the token sales, Ripple allegedly sold unregistered securities worth $1.38 billion, according to the SEC. In the US, this resulted in numerous token suspensions and delistings, including on Coinbase.

Even with the encouraging news, XRP’s future is uncertain. The FIT21 bill, which was recently passed, defines decentralization as having no single entity control the blockchain and no related parties holding more than 20% of the cryptocurrency or voting power. This puts Ripple in grave danger.

Ripple, on the other hand, currently possesses 5,258,162,324 XRP, or 46.5% of the 100 billion token supply. In addition, escrow will apply to the 41.3 billion XRP that are currently locked. In this sense, the tale of the conflict between the business and US authorities might suddenly take a different turn.CRYPTOCASTER® - DECENTRALIZED FREEDOM!

From  Elon Musk, Larry Fink(BlackRock) to Jamie Dimon(JP Morgan Chase) a number of billionaire owners have a powerful hold on so much of the hidden agendas’ which eludes the public concerning the paradigm shift juxtaposed by cryptocurrency and web3 emerging technologies. CryptoCaster is different. We have no billionaire owner or shareholders to consider. Our journalistic efforts are produced to serve the public interest in crypto development and institutional disruptions – not profit motives.

And we avoid the trap that befalls much U.S. and global media – the tendency, born of a desire to please all sides, to engage in false equivalence in the name of neutrality and retail consumer protection. While fairness and transparency dictates everything we do, we know there is a right and a wrong position in the fight against fiat global banking interest and monetary reconstruction precipitated by the emerging crypto ecology.

When we report on issues like the FTX, Binance and Ripple crisis, we’re not afraid to name who or what is uncovered. And as a crypto sentinel, we’re able to provide a fresh, outsider perspective on the global monetary disruption – one so often missing from the insular American and European media bubble.
