Ripple CEO’s Perspective: US Regulatory Environment and Cryptocurrency

Garlinghouse discussed concerns regarding regulations in the United States, stressing its impact on the growth of the cryptocurrency market. He noted a perceived lack of legislative advancement, which, in his view, impedes market expansion.

In a related note, the Ripple chief criticized what he described as a sluggish pace in Washington’s comprehension of the crypto market, stating, “Washington is still trying to understand this market.” He also singled out the current administration and regulatory figures, notably SEC Chair Gary Gensler, suggesting a lack of understanding regarding cryptocurrency.

Furthermore, the CEO disputed assertions by certain political figures, including Senator Elizabeth Warren, whom he quoted as characterizing crypto users exclusively as “bad actors.” Garlinghouse urged a shift towards more informed and pro-innovation policies, drawing parallels with the early days of the internet boom.
