About a week ago, the subject came up, whether Ripple is a security within the meaning of the American stock exchange Supervisory authority SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission). This would have far-reaching consequences, because crypto currency exchanges offering XRP to trading, would then need a license from the SEC. Now the Marketing boss of Ripple has expressed its opinion and made it clear that Ripple is definitely not a value paper.
The topic is so interesting because of the legal situation in the USA is currently still unclear whether and to what crypto-currencies as a “Security”, so as part of the securities of the stock exchange Supervisory authority SEC.

To CNBC, Johnson also stated that it was raised in talks with Coinbase (for possible listing) never a question of whether the XRP Token is to be classified from the point of view of the SEC as a securities.

CNBC reported that a spokesman from Coinbase has confirmed this statement, and that the stock market had never discussed a possible regulation with Ripple. In the discussions it had gone exclusively to the fulfilment of the publicly accessible criteria for the addition of new crypto-currencies in the case of Coinbase.
