Crypto jobs remain in vogue

It is worth noting that despite tanking prices and waining interest for crypto, job postings were steadily piling up on the website in 2018 when everyone and their uncle was parroting about the demise of Bitcoin.

"So with employers investing heavily in bitcoin jobs and cryptocurrencies becoming more accepted and accessible, blockchain tech seems like it’s here to stay."

If you want to end up among top contenders, it's also worth learning crypto-specific languages, such as Ethereum's Solidity and Bitcoin Script.

The company reiterates the same "statue of repose" argument, which means that the plaintiffs failed to meet a legal deadline for filing the suit. Ripple started selling XRP to retail investors back in 2013, which means that it was way too late to bring legal actions against it back in summer 2018 after a bar to a lawsuit was imposed in 2016.    

The blockchain behemoth also continues to insist that XRP is not a security, but it called this issue "irrelevant" to their latest motion, which is why it didn't address this point in-depth. It's not the first time that Ripple tries to dodge the big question that is the cornerstone of the long-lasting legal battle. 

"XRP is not a security, but that is irrelevant for purposes of this motion. Even if XRP were a security, Plaintiff's claims still fail as a matter of law,” the filing said.   

Ripple's previous attempt to throw the suit out of the court didn't bode well. As reported by U.Today, Bradley Sostack, the leading plaintiff in the ongoing case, believes that the defendants are still liable for selling illegal securities. The parties are expected to duke it out in court in January 2020.
