Why Would The Amount Of My Xrp Holdings Go Down?

I don’t understand how that would happen, since I purchased xrp before the fork happened.

no one will know what you purchased except you, and only because you’re walking around with your private keys. Everyone else sees an exchange rate provided by nserror. At this point in time everyone sees 1 XRP for roughly $0.37 USD. The fact that you are holding XRP – if it’s yours – no one knows yet, but it doesn’t matter because anyone can claim to own xrp without having any means of proving they do so outside of simply saying they have them…
