John E. Deaton, the attorney representing over 75,000 XRP token holders in Ripple Labs vs the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) lawsuit, is set to make a big announcement on Friday. Deaton has revealed three hints about the big announcement that seems to be related to XRP Ledger and Ethereum (ETH) ICO.

John Deaton Hints At Big Announcement

Pro-XRP lawyer John Deaton revealed hints about Friday’s big announcement after his friend JungleincX asked him to give hints on the possible announcement. Deaton didn’t disappoint the XRP community and revealed three hints — a photo of himself reading some papers, the XRPL, and ETH ICO. It confirms that the big announcement is related to a crucial development in the U.S. SEC v. Ripple Labs lawsuit.


He is likely to have early Ethereum adviser Steven Nerayoff on CryptoLawTV to discuss shocking allegations he made about Ethereum’s initial coin offering (ICO) and corruption at the SEC. Steven Nerayoff has been attacking US authorities including the SEC recently, sparking excitement in the XRP community.

He will also discuss why XRP is not a security as Ripple didn’t conduct any ICO seeking to benefit from the money raised to expand the XRPL. It is managed by validators and not by Ripple. Also, there is no investment contract between an XRP buyer and Ripple to qualify for the Howey Test.
