Meanwhile, Ripple Company has become a part of another litigation tied to XRP. Vladi Zakinov filed a class action lawsuit against Ripple Labs, XRP II, CEO Brad Garlinghouse and another 25 unnamed persons. He bought XRP in January and lost a lot of money as the coin is down 70% since the beginning of the year. Now Zakinov claims that XRP token is a security controlled by Ripple, while the defendants “made a series of improper statements which drove up the price of XRP,”
