According to the announcement by “XRP Ledger Foundation”, the newly developed standard will also include the XRP ledger support to create multi-feature NFTs applications, to bring better use cases of NFTs.

Ripple vs SEC 

However, Ripple is working with its all subsidiary toward the expansion of its services globally but right now company is under a huge legal hurdle because of the lawsuit filed by the US securities and exchange commission (SEC).

In December 2020, the SEC agency filed a lawsuit against Ripple and claimed that the native token of Ripple (XRP) is security, which is unregistered with the SEC agency, also Ripple sold more than $1 billion worth of XRP unregistered securities publicly, which was another violation of the laws.
