Ripple (XRP) trading price goes bearish after it was earlier revealed that SEC has filed a lawsuit against it, with a few cryptocurrency exchanges having halted trading of Ripple. So far the big exchanges are keeping fingers crossed but three small exchanges, namely OSL, Beaxy and CrossTower have halted Ripple trading with more exchanges likely to follow suit in the foreseeable future until the formal court decision is release.

The SEC alleges Ripple of paying money to exchanges to permit the "buying and selling of XRP" on their platform.

    "You know who is at risk if XRP is considered a security? EVERY EXCHANGE THAT LISTS XRP."


On account of this, most cryptocurrency exchanges are hopeful the filed suits goes in favour of Ripple to avoid sanctions or penalty for listing it, with many traders staying off XRP trading.
