Ripple Ally Loses Against SEC, Hundreds of Billions of SHIB Wired, XRP Could Beat BTC and DOGE on Twitter: Crypto News Digest by U.Today
To keep you updated on events in the crypto world over the past day, U.Today presents the top four news stories.
Ripple ally loses against SEC
In a recent tweet, LBRY, a P2P content distribution network, announced its defeat against the SEC after the U.S. District Court for the District of New Hampshire ruled that LBRY offered its LBC token as an unregistered security. The project’s team then proceeded to say that they are going to “lick their wounds for a little bit” but are not giving up. The regulating agency sued LBRY for selling unregistered securities just months after bringing a similar lawsuit against Ripple. In June, LBRY suggested that the case would have a strong impact on Ripple and the entire crypto industry. The SEC’s victory is likely to have significant repercussions for the Ripple case as the agency will use the ruling to support its stance.

Meanwhile, on Nov. 5, the Shiba Inu account revealed an official Twitter account for the Shibarium Layer 2 protocol. Since its launch, it can already boast 24,500 followers. The SHIB team stated that this profile will end up becoming a hub for all things Shibarium.
XRP could beat BTC and DOGE on Twitter, CryptoLaw founder suggests, but there's a catch
CryptoLaw founder John Deaton has taken to Twitter to disagree with Anthony Pompliano, who suggested that if Elon Musk wants to integrate crypto on Twitter, the only possible choice is BTC, not DOGE. In his reply, the CryptoLaw founder wrote that XRP was already in use on Twitter years before BTC tipping was introduced via the XRPTip Bot, which was blocked in 2020. This occurred as Twitter was developing its own tipping service, which first adopted Bitcoin. Deaton believes it happened because Jack Dorsey, the CEO back in 2020, was against all crypto but BTC and the Lightning Network, which allows for making BTC payments faster and cheaper.
