TapJets, a private jet charter company and partner at Blockchain Expo of North America officially filed its amicus curiae brief supporting Ripple’s summary judgment motion. This strengthened the payment giant’s side in its fight against the US regulator, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
TapJets has called to preserve the use of XRP as a fiat alternative token. In its brief the private jet firm notes that at a time when the traditional banking system fails to function effectively or goes out of service during weekends, XRP is a necessary alternative.
TapJets started accepting XRP for booking private jet travel and users can instantly book their travel through cryptocurrency payments. Users face unprecedented delays in the traditional banking system and rely on cryptocurrencies to get the job done, as a fiat alternative. TapJets filing supports this alternative and the use of XRP as an alternative to fiat.
The statement reads:
TapJets calls this the ‘Friday Night Problem’ because the limitations in fiat currency and the banking system become most problematic when a traveler wishes to book weekend travel, such as on Friday night.
There are other cryptocurrencies that tackle the same challenge, however XRP is effective and offers cheaper transactions, shorter finality time, compared to its competitors. TapJets relies on XRP and considers it a trusted payment method that many of its customers prefer.
Based on data from a 2018 Twitter poll, 43% of the respondents favored XRP as a fiat alternative over others. The poll received a total of 57,054 votes while the poll was live, with an overwhelming majority, 43.9% of the votes were in favor of XRP.
Whales moved 572 million XRP tokens across major cryptocurrency exchanges, Binance, Coinbase and Huobi, among others. This movement of XRP indicates a spike in selling pressure and a redistribution of exchange balances.
Analysts are convinced that XRP could decline below the $0.486 level and invalidate the bullish thesis.
