I think what everyone fears is coming true... That XRP (Ripple company) will be the example made of by US regulators to warn those that want to create a fund raising platform through tokens without a clear ultility from day one will be targeted.

Ripple did a good job getting new people with the corporate image and they did teach a lot of businesses that would otherwise shy away from crypto, but XRP wasn't really ever a real crypto because the corporations had to continually promote and pump it.
