Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse Says He’s Open to Settling Landmark XRP Case With SEC

Published

on

Ripple’s chief executive Brad Garlinghouse says the San Francisco-based payments firm is open to settling its lawsuit with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) under one condition.

In a new interview with Fox Business, Garlinghouse says Ripple would be willing to settle with the SEC if the regulator clearly defines the regulatory status of XRP.

“To the extent we can find a constructive path forward with the SEC, we, of course, want to find that. There’s no scenario though that we’re going to settle unless there’s absolute certainty about what XRP is on a go-forward basis.

And it’s very clear that how Ripple is using these technologies, how many scores of other people in the community are using these technologies. They’re not securities. They do not represent an ownership in Ripple the company.”

Garlinghouse also says that the crypto industry is already significantly regulated despite recent statements by SEC Chair Gary Gensler that the space is a “Wild West.”

“I think we lose sight of the fact that crypto is regulated. It’s regulated by the CFTC (Commodity Futures Trading Commission). It’s regulated by other government entities, whether its FinCEN (Financial Crimes Enforcement Network) and the U.S. Treasury. So when I’ve heard the SEC people come forward and say, ‘Hey this is the Wild Wild West. It’s not regulated.’

Well that’s not entirely true… Previously, they (SEC) said Bitcoin’s not a security. ETH’s (Ethereum) not a security.”

Mike Novogratz posted an interesting message on his social media account about the price of XRP. Check it out below.

Someone said: “It plummeted over 60% when the case was filed wiping some people out because they panic sold or was forced to sell. That’s ok if it’s b/c the market itself was the cause but it’s not ok when caused by arbitrary SEC overreach.I agree its recovery shows it’s not only tied to Ripple.”

One other commenter posted this: “based on XRP’s utility potential , it should be 50x by now in comparison to slow BTC and high gas fees of ETH. so it just trippled since lawsuit after 80% straight dump where as others are 6X since dec 2020 post ripple lawsuit.”

XRP bullish prediction is out

Check out what the firm has to say:

“XRP’s social volume saw an uptick, but nothing too crazy like what we observed back in April, where [its] price was parabolic and everyone was just crazy over XRP.”

Santiment continued and pointed out the following as well:

“This lack of interest from the crowd is healthy for now and more so when price keeps inching upwards and social volume remains low, suggesting perhaps the crowd are in disbelief.”

XRP Lawsuit: SEC repeats “privileged documents” argument like a broken record

Published

on

ripple-v-SEC

After hitting face first in the DPP dispute, the SEC has continued to assert its “privileged documents” stance. The latest development in the XRP lawsuit saw the SEC submit a redacted version of the three additional documents requested by Ripple for in-camera review on the public docket. The commission also submitted an explanation for its privilege assertions for all those documents that the plaintiff had either redacted or withheld by logging them as “privileged”.

SEC asserts protection under DPP and irrelevance of documents

The SEC has reinstated its “privileged” stance, noting that the documents are pre-decisional and deliberative, and therefore protected by the deliberative process privilege. The plaintiff claimed that the court should not be disarming the SEC’s privilege because the additional documents along with SEC’s September 14 documents that the commission filed under Appendix A are both protected under DPP, and discovery will further discourage government employees from genuine deliberations regarding crypto regulations. Additionally, the commission asserts that the documents are also irrelevant to both, SEC’s claims, and defendants’ objections.

“The documents on Appendix A, the Additional Documents are protected by the DPP, and the compelled release of these documents would discourage meaningful deliberations among SEC staff relating to regulatory activities in the digital asset space. Moreover, like the Appendix A documents, the Additional Documents are wholly irrelevant to the SEC’s claims or the Defendants’ proposed defenses…None of these documents even comes close to addressing whether Defendants’ offerings of XRP are securities transactions. The Court should not pierce the SEC’s privilege under these circumstances.”

Earlier this month the Court granted Ripple’s September 24 appeal, seeking the addition of three documents by the SEC for in-camera review. These documents include the two documents related to the SEC’s meetings with law firms, along the email trail concerning discussions with a third party who received guidance from the SEC to analyze its digital asset under the framework set forth in Hinman’s June 14, 2018, speech.
