Garlinghouse further said Tuesday that Ripple would consider a settlement with the SEC if the regulator states that XRP is not a security. The executive stressed that the XRP case “is about the whole industry,” adding:

Garlinghouse noted that Ripple’s business in the U.S. is limited, noting that “For all intents and purposes, XRP does not have liquidity in the United States.”

The SEC sued Ripple, Garlinghouse, and co-founder Chris Larsen in December 2020, alleging that they raised over $1.3 billion through an unregistered, ongoing digital asset securities offering of XRP. Ripple subsequently filed a motion seeking to dismiss the suit, claiming the XRP token is not a security. Meanwhile, the SEC has also asked the court for a ruling in its favor without a trial.

In July, Garlinghouse said: “I think the SEC has massively overstepped … I think they saw this gray area they’re like ‘hey we are going to go in.’” The Ripple boss reiterated: “It’s frustrating it’s taking this long. There’s a lot of companies, I think, that realize how important this case is to the whole industry.”

Ripple is a real-time gross settlement system, currency exchange and remittance network created by Ripple Labs Inc., a US-based technology company.

Released in 2012, Ripple is built upon a distributed open source protocol, and supports tokens representing fiat currency, cryptocurrency, commodities, or other units of value such as frequent flier miles or mobile minutes.

Ripple purports to enable “secure, instantly and nearly free global financial transactions of any size with no chargebacks”.

The ledger employs the native cryptocurrency known as XRP.

In December 2020, Ripple Labs and two of its executives were sued by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) for selling XRP tokens, which the SEC classified as unregistered securities.
