exchange joins XRP trading restriction

Cryptocurrency exchange Bitjux reported the suspension of trading in pairs with XRP from January 15. As on other exchanges, this was a reaction to the SEC’s lawsuit against Ripple.
Bitjux was the eleventh platform to limit trading in pairs with XRP. Some exchanges and companies suspend trading with XRP only for customers from the U.S., while others completely disable the possibility of trading with this cryptocurrency. In addition to Bitjux, trading with XRP has been or will be suspended on coinbase, OKCoin, Beaxy, Bitstamp, Galaxy Digital, B2C, Jump Trading, CrossTower, Bitwise and OSL. At the moment, only Binance and Kraken have not announced the suspension of XRP trading from the largest exchanges.

“Until further notices, customers will have access to their XRP wallets on the Bitjux platform, even after trading is suspended,” the exchange said in a statement.

Recall that the regulator accuses the management of Ripple in the sale in 2013 unregistered securities, which were XRP coins. For his part, Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse said the SEC’s lawsuit is an attack on the altcoins and the cryptocurrency industry as a whole. Ripple itself officially holds a similar position.
