Quote
Ripple, its former CEO and founder Christian Larsen, and its current CEO Bradley Garlinghouse are being sued by the US Securities and Exchange Commission. The SEC says that they raised more than $1.3 billion through an unregistered securities offering.

Quote
According to the complaint, the “illegal securities offering” created an information asymmetry that let Larsen and Garlinghouse sell XRP to investors who only knew what Larsen and Garlinghouse chose to tell them.

It's also notable that Chris Larsen has now started two different companies that have been sued by the SEC for violating securities law.

Ripple is down to $0.225/XRP on the news that Coinbase is delisting them in mid January due to the SEC actions. That's down 63% in the past month. 52% in the past week.
