Ruling Finds XRP is Not a Security, First Industry Win Against the SEC Sets Precedent For Other Tokens in the U.S.

(BUSINESS WIRE)--From day one, Ripple has said the SEC's suit against the company (and its CEO and Chair) was baseless and yet another attempt to regulate through intimidation and enforcement. The Court’s July 13 decision is a landmark ruling, not just for Ripple, but for the entire U.S. crypto industry.

"The Court's decision marks a historic occasion not only for the company, but also for crypto at large," said Ripple CEO ... Read more »
