Trading app based in Tel Aviv eToro has issued an apology to XRP Army, a term used to describe the great and dedicated chirping following Ripple's digital currency, on a critical video detailing the price action of XRP as a warning to investors.
We are happy to see how strong and well connected the #xrpcommunity is. It seems the message from our latest video has offended some of you and we want you to know that we love XRP and the community, and not just because XRP is one of our most valued assets 🤗

In excuses tweet, eToro explains that the now deleted video was intended to push the idea of diversification. However, many within the XRP community saw this as nothing other than "FUD" (fear, uncertainty and doubt), which quickly led eToro to further elaborate their position.
"The message in the video is not to abandon #XRP, but rather to consider the possibility of diversifying its portfolio based on the XRP statistics held on eToro Many investors would agree that diversification does not replace HODL & # 39. ; ing, but it is rather a positive addition to building a more robust investment portfolio. "says eToro.
Like before reported, eToro customers have taken the recent price drop as an opportunity to add to their positions in Bitcoin, EOS and XRP. Given the significant capital inflows, it is clear that eToro will probably avoid offending the zealous XRP community in the future.
