The New York regulatory authority has officially removed Dogecoin (DOGE) and Ripple (XRP) from its esteemed “green list.” This decision comes after a thorough review, in which both tokens failed to meet the regulator’s stringent criteria for approval.
The “Green List” Explained
For those unfamiliar, the “green list” is a curated selection of cryptocurrencies that have been deemed safe and compliant by New York’s regulatory body. Being on this list not only grants these tokens a seal of approval but also facilitates their adoption and trading within the state’s jurisdiction.
Who’s Still In?
Despite the removal of DOGE and XRP, eight other tokens have managed to retain their spots on the list. Among them are industry giants like Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH), as well as the newly introduced PayPal Dollar.
Implications for DOGE and XRP
The delisting of DOGE and XRP is a significant setback for both tokens. Not only does it limit their trading and adoption in one of the world’s financial hubs, but it also raises questions about their regulatory compliance and long-term viability.
However, it’s worth noting that the impact on XRP may be somewhat localized to the New York area. XRP has enjoyed a series of positive news and sentiment in recent months, which could potentially offset the negative implications of this delisting. Nonetheless, investors and traders are advised to exercise caution and conduct due diligence when dealing with these tokens.
As the regulatory landscape for cryptocurrencies continues to evolve, all eyes will be on New York’s next moves. Will other states follow suit? And how will this decision impact the broader crypto market? Only time will tell.
