Chief market strategist at Ripple Foundation Cory Johnson in a conversation with CNBC said that XRP is not a security.

Johnson raised the issue of the classification of XRP after publication, which said that it was the status of the cryptocurrency that interfered with its addition to the american exchange Coinbase.

We absolutely are not a security. We don't meet the standards for what a security is based on the history of court law.

Coinbase and Ripple discussed the possibility of adding XRP to the exchange, but they did not concern the status of XRP as a security, Johnson said.

Coinbase never ever raised the issue of whether or not XRP is a security in our discussions about listing XRP. We're 100 percent clear, it's not a security. We don't meet the standards.

Coinbase also confirmed to CNBC that it had not discussed with Ripple the issue of classifying XRP, and all talks concerned more general topics.
