The U.S. division of Israeli crypto exchange eToro is suspending XRP trading for its customers effective next month.

The exchange announced Wednesday it would stop facilitating XRP purchases or conversions for U.S. customers effective Jan. 3, though customers can still withdraw XRP from their eToro wallets to other unaffiliated addresses. It’s he latest crypto trading venue to suspend XRP support in the U.S. after the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) sued Ripple earlier this month on allegations that it has been selling XRP as an unregistered security for over seven years.

Other exchanges to delist or suspend XRP trading or markets include:

  • Coinbase
  • Crypto.com
  • OKCoin
  • Ziglu
  • Wirex
  • Bittrex
  • Swipe Wallet
  • Crosstower
  • Beaxy
  • OSL
  • Jump Trading
  • Galaxy Digital
  • Bitwise

Most of these platforms have only removed XRP from their U.S. markets or platforms, though a few have suspended support internationally.

According to the SEC suit, which was filed last week in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, Ripple, CEO Brad Garlinghouse and Chairman Chris Larsen have sold some $1.3 billion in XRP since 2013. The SEC alleges that Ripple did not register XRP as a security or seek an exemption for the token, of which it holds nearly 50 billion in escrow.

For its part, Ripple has called the allegations “unproven,†and has promised to file a response in court in the coming weeks. The San Francisco-based firm has repeatedly called the SEC’s suit an “attack on crypto†in the U.S., with CEO Garlinghouse claiming the agency’s actions “directly benefit China.â€

A pretrial conference has been scheduled for Feb. 22, 2021, according to public court records, with the parties required to submit a joint letter describing the case and the arguments each side plans to make, potential motions and any potential settlement details the week before.

The SEC and Ripple must also file a joint letter by Feb. 15 stating whether both parties are willing to consent to having a magistrate judge oversee proceedings (rather than a district judge).
