  • The final phase of discovery related to remedies in the SEC v. Ripple case is crucial to the future of XRP.
  • The potential departure of senior SEC lawyers and scrutiny towards their leadership could impact the regulatory approach.

The current situation surrounding the SEC v. Ripple case and its implications for Ripple and XRP is multifaceted and unfolding. First, the final phase of discovery related to remedies marks a crucial step towards the resolution of one of the most anticipated litigation in the crypto space.

The fact that the SEC and Ripple are moving toward reporting related to remedies for the alleged violation of Section 5 of the Securities Act underscores the gravity of the case and its potential implications for XRP.

A potential punitive sanction, such as forced disgorgement, could have a negative impact on XRP, especially if Judge Analisa Torres decides to impose a penalty this summer for the Section 5 violation.

In addition, the SEC’s intention to appeal the Programmatic Sales ruling adds a layer of uncertainty and could extend litigation into 2025 or even 2026, representing a headwind for XRP in the short to medium term.

On the other hand, increasing pressure on the SEC, especially criticism of Gary Gensler’s leadership and the potential departure of senior lawyers from the enforcement team, could weaken the agency’s ability to regulate through enforcement.

The response from Ripple Chief Legal Officer Stuart Alderoty and reports of a talent drain at the SEC suggest that the agency is facing internal challenges that could influence its regulatory approach and the case against Ripple.

The SEC’s recent motion to dismiss charges against Debt Box and the scrutiny from U.S. lawmakers toward the SEC’s actions could have an impact on how cases against other crypto firms, including Ripple, are perceived and handled.

U.S. senators’ attention and concern over the Debt Box case reflect the increasing scrutiny toward the SEC and could portend a change in the regulatory and legal dynamics affecting Ripple and the cryptocurrency market in general.
