And that specific transaction was a safety, an funding contract.’ And now they’re saying that every one gross sales of XRP — the token itself — is a safety.”

“Yesterday’s opinion from the Courtroom on Ripple and the SEC’s proposed skilled opinions – should you didn’t learn all 57 pages, right here’s the TLDR [too long; didn’t read]
Particularly – not solely is the SEC’s skilled on ‘affordable expectations of an XRP purchaser’ struck from the report, however so is their skilled who tried to say what “prompted” the worth of XRP to vary.
On the flip facet – our consultants that specify how Ripple’s contracts clearly differ from these in ‘Howey,’ tax remedy of XRP (not a safety), accounting remedy of XRP (not a safety), and forex consultants on XRP (not a safety) are all allowed to remain in.”
As we now have stated all through, we now have at all times felt assured about our case and with every ruling, much more so.”
