Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse has addressed some of the allegations made by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) against his company. He focused on answering five questions on what he calls “unproven allegations†by the regulator.

Garlinghouse Says There Is ‘Regulatory Chaos’ in the US

In a Twitter thread on his official profile, Garlinghouse claimed that the blockchain company “tried†to settle with the U.S. SEC. He added that the firm will try again with the new administration but refused to go into specifics.

In response to crypto exchanges listing XRP, Garlinghouse said that the company “has no control†over where the token is listed. “It’s open-source and decentralized,†claimed the Ripple executive.

However, the CEO discussed in-depth the matter of when XRP will be relisted on exchanges that have delisted the token. Referencing the Digital Commodity Exchange Act (DCEA), he described:

Ripple’s Initial Response Will Be Filed Within the Next Few Weeks

On Jan. 7, 2020, Stuart Alderoty, general counsel at Ripple Inc., pointed out that legal processes take time. Garlinghouse commented:

The Ripple CEO also recognized that the company “provided some customers, especially first movers,†with incentives to use its On-Demand Liquidity (ODL) services. He further claimed that companies such as Paypal, Visa, and Mastercard “still†use incentives.

At the end of 2020, Ripple hit back at the SEC, accusing the agency of creating more uncertainty due to the “dangerous lack of regulatory clarity for crypto in the U.S.†The company blasted the lawsuit, saying that it affected “countless innocent XRP retail holders with no connection to Ripple.†According to markets.Bitcoin.com, XRP is exchanging hands at $0.3222, with a market capitalization of $14.65 billion as of press time.
