Chris Larsen, the co-founder of Ripple, made comments about the ongoing lawsuit between Ripple and the SEC in a recent interview with Bloomberg. Larsen emphasized that the ongoing court process and the outcome of the case are not only important for Ripple but also for the entire crypto industry.
The ongoing legal battle between Ripple and the SEC has become a symbol of the escalating tension between crypto companies and regulatory authorities. The lawsuits filed by the SEC against cryptocurrency exchanges Binance and Coinbase in June have significantly increased this tension. SEC Chairman Gensler has faced intense criticism from many figures in the crypto industry during this process.
Brian Armstrong, the CEO of Coinbase, the largest US-based cryptocurrency exchange in terms of trading volume, is also among the figures who criticized regulatory authorities. Armstrong even mentioned the possibility of moving the exchange’s headquarters from the US to another country in the past, although he later retracted his statements.
Meanwhile, the judge’s decision that Ripple’s XRP sales do not constitute investment contracts in the Ripple case has been considered a significant victory for Ripple. However, the appeals process is still ongoing, and the case has not yet been concluded in favor of Ripple.
