The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) plans to appeal a recent court decision regarding Ripple’s XRP cryptocurrency. Legal experts believe that if the appeals court adopts the decision, it could have significant implications for the SEC’s case against Coinbase. The court’s ruling stated that digital assets like XRP are not securities, which could limit the SEC’s ability to regulate platforms that facilitate the trading of digital assets. Additionally, the decision could make it harder for the SEC to regulate the distribution of digital assets created by companies. However, if Congress approves legislation with detailed crypto rules, these implications may become irrelevant.
