The recent ruling on the Ripple case, in which XRP was declared as “sometimes a security and sometimes not,” has received criticism from Congressman Brad Sherman. Sherman has been critical of the cryptocurrency industry, linking it to illegal activities and financial impropriety.

The SEC argues that the ruling undermines the traditional test for determining when assets are securities.
