🧵I just reviewed the Digital Commodity Exchange Act #DCEA and two things jumped out at me. 1) It says it permits "trading in only digital commodities that are not readily susceptible to manipulation." If a crypto is centralized, it certainly can be manipulated, *cough* ETH. 1/5
2) It also said to test that the backup resources of the digital commodity exchange are sufficient to ensure continued..."maintenance of a comprehensive and accurate audit trail." One crypto we know is lacking in a transparent audit trail is USDT, Tether. 2/4
Which exchange can Tether impact? Since Coinbase (COIN) announced it will accept Tether on all of its platforms, I agree with this article that COIN will suffer due to its "shackle to Tether". 3/5…

Can’t get into specifics, but know we tried - and will continue to try w/ the new administration - to resolve this in a way so the XRP community can continue innovating, consumers are protected and orderly markets are preserved. 2/10
Q: Did you pay exchanges to list XRP? When will it be relisted?

XRP is one of the most liquid (top 3-5) digital assets globally, and 95% is traded outside the US. Ripple has no control over where XRP is listed, who owns it, etc. It’s open-source and decentralized. 3/10

Lots of speculation last week as Team @Ripple considers some very important decisions about our future. I want to clarify a couple of things related to some of what I read. (1/5)
Ripple is a proud US-based company. Ripple abides by and supports critical laws - like strong BSA/AML controls - that keep bad actors out and consumers safe. We are NOT looking to evade US regulation. (2/5)
However, last week’s DOJ report lists 8 separate US reg bodies each with a different view: crypto is property, crypto is a commodity, crypto is a virtual currency, crypto is a security, etc. Regulation shouldn’t be a guessing game. (3/5)
