Ripple CEO Says Legal Dispute With YouTube Over XRP Scams Now Resolved

Youtube is said to have settled a court case brought by Ripple that alleged the video platform failed to enforce its own policies and allowed fake accounts to impersonate the blockchain payments company and its CEO Brad Garlinghouse.

In a series of tweets Tuesday, Garlinghouse said the companies have now opted to “work together” with YouTube to “prevent, detect and take down these scams.”

In April, Ripple sued the video streaming giant for failing to effectively police against scams involving the cryptocurrency XRP (-1.91%), resulting in monetary damage to users and reputational harm to Ripple. The lawsuit focused on the “XRP Giveaway” frauds, which aim to trick victims into believing that if they send some amount of XRP they will receive a greater amount in return.
