There have been rumors on Twitter that the SEC may settle the case with Ripple Labs. The RippleCoin (XRP) has been gaining momentum for a few days on the expectations of a favorable outcome.
Turning Point in the SEC vs Ripple Case
The SEC vs. Ripple case took an unexpected turn when both parties filed for summary judgment, a term used to request an immediate ruling.
The case has been in the purview of the courts since 22 December 2020.
Brief About the SEC vs Ripple Labs Case
The whole case is around the concept of “SECURITIES” to decide whether XRP(Ripple Coin) is a security or not.
Between 2013 and 2020, Ripple Labs sold XRP Coins to raise over $1.3 Billion.
The US Securities and Exchange Commission filed a lawsuit against Ripple Labs, claiming that Ripple Labs co-founders Christian Larsen and Bradley Garlinghouse made illegitimate gains by selling those Ripple Coins(XRP).
According to the SEC, the Ripple Coin(XRP) was offered to investors, but they were not listed as security.
However, Ripple Labs argued that XRP was not a security as the SEC had earlier classified Bitcoin and Ethereum as not being securities. Further, they claimed that Ripple was not an investment contract as it did not offer any profit.
On Sept 18, Stuart Alderoty, Ripple Lab’s Counsel commented on the SEC vs Ripple case that even after 2 years, SEC could not find anything to prove that Ripple Qualified for the Howey Test (a US Supreme Court Mandated test for checking if an instrument is a Security).
