The Ripple case seems to be going better than expected. Meanwhile the SEC is realizing that attacking crypto is politically unpopular (because it harms consumers). google.com/amp/s/www.forbes.…

Every litigator will tell you it’s always the defendant - never the plaintiff - asking to delay proceedings. Why would any plaintiff, let alone one with unlimited resources, play the delay card? 👀

I think this article’s subheadline says it all 👀
The stakes are high for regulating the crypto industry: until it becomes a part of the regulated economy, it will be associated with a notion of criminality. nyer.cm/Hvy7aYN

Today was another good day.
XRP holders have always said that the SEC’s lawsuit is a direct attack on them. Now it's official. The Court’s ruling permits John Deaton to share his “meaningful perspective” to help the Court “reach a proper decision.” Yet another important (and positive) development.

This thread details it all, but TLDR: w/ a focus on going carbon-negative and using digital currency (including a partnership to pilot @Ripple's CBDC solution!) to promote financial inclusion, Bhutan is leading the charge ahead of neighbors like India.
The tiny Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan wants a digital currency. That could make its population of 800,000 happier trib.al/4cwMYA3

Can crypto disintermediate traditional fiat FX companies to take over the $130T cross-border payments industry? It all comes down to crypto liquidity -- and good news, that’s trending positively. I break down the data for @TechCrunch here 🔽

Thanks @LizClaman @CGasparino for having me on the show! As I said, American innovation is on the line because of the SEC’s refusal to provide a clear framework for crypto. 1/2 video.foxbusiness.com/v/6274…

Instead of working with the industry, the SEC is using their meetings with companies as lead generation for their enforcement actions. Once the dust settles, it’ll be clear that Ripple’s on the right side of the law, and the right side of history. 2/2

Chair Gensler insisted (again) in today's testimony that the securities laws are clear and easily understandable for the crypto market...and then turned around and said Congress needs to write laws to clarify. So which one is it? Thank you @SenToomey for being a voice of reason.
Gary Gensler’s push for the Securities and Exchange Commission to get tough on cryptocurrencies is drawing a rebuke from Republican Senator Pat Toomey trib.al/PTvGTPJ

Some (UK, Singapore, Japan, etc) have clear frameworks for innovation to flourish w/ consumer & market protection, others with sandboxes for safe collaboration between innovators & regulators. How did the US end up with secret regulatory inquisitions? 2/2

The SEC’s continued warfare on crypto continues to play out. In Dec 2020, I said that we’d been having discussions with the SEC for nearly 3 years about XRP, “..and yet never been met with clarity.” Sound familiar!? 1/2 ripple.com/insights/the-secs…

Thankfully today many recognize the havoc caused by regulation by enforcement. We’re ready to work with responsible actors, pro-innovation members of Congress, and others in paving a path to clarity and certainty with US regulators. 2/3

Replying to @brian_armstrong
20/ If we end up in court we may finally get the regulatory clarity the SEC refuses to provide. But regulation by litigation should be the last resort for the SEC, not the first.

This paper has nearly been a year in the works -- thrilled to see it go live. Over the draft process, I was reminded of how much we in crypto have in common, especially the shared vision that crypto has so much positive potential. Good to reflect on that every once in a while :)
