To use the XRP ledger blockchain technology, the Colombian government established a partnership with San Francisco-based Fintech firm, Ripple.

Ripple is a San Francisco-based Fintech company. This company is a leading payment services provider company, which uses blockchain technology to bring payment facilities across the world. The whole payment system of Ripple is based on Ripple’s XRP token liquidity use under a decentralized medium but still company facing legal hurdles because of a lawsuit from the US Securities body against the XRP token about its nature.

Ripple vs SEC

In December 2020, The US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filed a lawsuit against the Ripple firm and claimed that Ripple’s XRP token is a security, which is unregistered with the SEC agency. 

This lawsuit is still going on. However, the majority of the facts are in favor of the Ripple firm but still Ripple is ready to expand its business outside of the US, in case of lose the XRP lawsuit.

Such types of legal hurdles are surely hurting the business operations of crypto companies but here we can expect that the future will be something different, where crypto companies will be allowed to evolve under highly precise rules and regulations.
