Meanwhile, recent reports suggest that the highly anticipated summary judgment in the Ripple lawsuit against the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) could be coming in the next few weeks. The stakes in the case are high as the verdict could have long-term implications for the future of the cryptocurrency market.
Ripple vs. SEC Case Heads to Supreme Court
Speaking with Deaton, Professor JW Verret of George Mason University’s Scalia School of Law said the amicus brief in the Ripple case would be important if the case made it to the Supreme Court. The XRP lawyer said he has heard rumors that the SEC plans to take 200 enforcement actions against the cryptocurrency market over the next two years. The rumor comes against the backdrop of recent U.S. enforcement actions against stablecoin operations and cryptocurrency staking services. He believes the SEC’s agenda is to crush cryptocurrencies and allow incumbents to come in and get a bigger share of infrastructure and retail.
