Ripple Comments on Legal Proceedings

Ripple has commented on these legal proceedings, saying that there are facts wrong about XRP. Said the company’s lawyers:

“The SEC is completely wrong on the facts and law and we are confident we will ultimately prevail before a neutral fact-finder. XRP, the third largest virtual currency with billions of dollars in trading every day, is a currency like the SEC has deemed Bitcoin and Ether, and is not an investment contract. This case bears no resemblance to the initial coin offering cases the SEC has previously brought and stretches the Howey standard beyond recognition.”

Bard Garlinghouse, CEO of Ripple, also asserted in an extensive blog statement that XRP “do not share in the profits of Ripple or receive dividends, nor do they have voting rights or other corporate rights.”
