Ripple CEO Reveals Insights on Whether SEC Case is “Done and Dusted”


Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse has shed light on whether the case with the SEC is now done and dusted amid Ripple’s streak of victories against the U.S. regulator. 

SEC Has Lost on Everything That Matters

Speaking during a fireside chat at the 2023 DC Tech Week, Garlinghouse contended that the SEC had suffered losses on crucial aspects and matters of significance in the Ripple case. “The SEC has lost on everything that matters,” he remarked.

The Ripple CEO noted that whether the case is done and dusted hinges on the SEC’s decision to pursue an appeal. Garlinghouse further highlighted that if the SEC chooses to escalate the appeal process, the impact of its losses would be magnified.

Additionally, he reiterated that Ripple is ready to follow up on the case with the U.S. Supreme Court if the circumstances warrant such. Garlinghouse conveyed a strong belief that the SEC would not prevail at the Supreme Court, highlighting that the highest court has historically not been favorable to regulators.

Time for the U.S. to Review Path to Regulation

Moreover, he cited the SEC’s losses in the Grayscale case, where the judge presiding over the case ruled that the SEC was acting “arbitrarily and capriciously.” 

Notably, this legal phrasing implies deliberate and irrational actions taken without proper consideration, overlooking pertinent facts, circumstances, and the rights of other involved parties.

The Ripple CEO sought to stress with this anecdote that the use of such damning language by a federal judge should prompt the SEC to reconsider its path to crypto regulation. He expressed the idea that persistently pursuing the same strategy with consistently unfavorable outcomes necessitates reevaluating one’s approach at some point.

Additionally, Garlinghouse pointed out that other countries are bolstering their market impact by adopting transparent policies and drawing investments into the crypto sector. In contrast, the U.S. retains a skeptical approach to cryptocurrencies, 

He expressed apprehension that the U.S. is relinquishing its potential leadership position in the crypto industry due to the absence of a supportive regulatory environment. Nonetheless, the Ripple CEO remains optimistic that the U.S. will establish a favorable regulatory framework for crypto in the coming decade.
