December 22, 2021 5:44 pm

As some of you already know December 22, 2020 was the date that the SEC v. Ripple case was filed.

Well now, flash forward one roller coaster year later and it undoubtedly looks like Ripple will snag a win on the fair notice defense.

To acknowledge the one year anniversary of the lawsuit, CEO of Ripple Brad Garlinghouse tweeted out a thread of tweets that started off by blasting the SEC for claiming that XRP should have registered as a security.

Garlinghouse also called out the SEC’s hypocrisy and stated that “the SEC today won’t answer questions about the legal status of ETH, much less anything else. Is the agency actually living up to its mission of protecting investors”.

Garlinghouse also called out Chairman of the SEC Garry Gensler for being anti-crypto.

Brad Garlinghouse, Chief Executive Officer of Ripple, took to Twitter to share his thoughts on the first birthday of the lawsuit, pointing the finger at ex-SEC Chair Jay Clayton as the “battle is just beginning”.

“Today, the SEC voted to attack crypto. Chairman Jay Clayton – in his final act – is picking winners and trying to limit US innovation in the crypto industry to BTC and ETH.

“We know crypto and blockchain technologies aren’t going anywhere. Ripple has and will continue to use XRP because it is the best digital asset for payments – speed, cost, scalability and energy efficiency. It’s traded on 200+ exchanges globally and will continue to thrive.

“The SEC – out of step with other G20 countries & the rest of the US govt – should not be able to cherry-pick what innovation looks like (especially when their decision directly benefits China). Make no mistake, we are ready to fight and win – this battle is just beginning”.

To conclude his statement  Garlinghouse called for everyone to reach out to their local Representative and Senators to improve the SEC’s stance regarding cryptocurrency.
