XRP trading will be suspended for US customers starting Jan 15, 2021

Due to the recent SEC action against Ripple Labs, Inc. and the current regulatory uncertainty surrounding the status of XRP in the United States, Abra plans to suspend trading in XRP for US customers at 3 PM PST on Friday, Jan 15th, 2021.

Until further notice, customers can continue to have access to their XRP wallet on Abra. Additionally, any withdrawals from the XRP wallet would also continue to be operational.

Abra will continue to monitor legal developments related to XRP and update our customers as more information becomes available. Please follow @abraglobal on Twitter to stay tuned with the latest announcements from Abra.
