Ripple’s ongoing lawsuit
Ripple has been in a legal battle with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) since December 2020 over whether XRP is a security or not. The SEC’s lawsuit alleges that Ripple and its executives sold XRP as an unregistered security, resulting in investors losing money. Ripple has consistently denied the allegations and has argued that XRP is not a security.
The outcome of the case could have significant implications for the cryptocurrency industry, as it could set a precedent for how other cryptocurrencies are regulated in the US.
XRP community support
Throughout the legal battle, the XRP community has remained steadfast in its support for Ripple. Garlinghouse’s statement at the XRP Las Vegas 2023 meetup and subsequent tweet show that the CEO is appreciative of the community’s support. The XRP Las Vegas 2023 event is an example of how the XRP community continues to come together to support advancements in blockchain technology and Ripple’s ongoing legal battle with the SEC.
Judge Torres made it very clear in the Daubert motion decision that the issue she must decide is whether Ripple sold XRP as a security despite the SEC taking broader positions at times in this litigation that seemed to suggest any sale of XRP was an investment contract or /1 https://t.co/HL1mclv8Xg pic.twitter.com/BrcHGAQlG9
