“With an abundance of coins that offer tremendous perks. It is ridiculous to get emotionally attached to $ XRP now that you are being sued by the SEC. The exchanges will remove you from the list and the financial services industry will not dare touching it until it is released. ” Good investors admit that things change and go on. “
