The SEC is appealing a decision regarding Ripple Labs and its XRP cryptocurrency. The SEC argues that the ruling on the Programmatic Sales could have significant persuasive value in ongoing SEC enforcement actions. The defense claims that the SEC has not provided sufficient evidence to support their argument. The defense also accuses the SEC of hastily trying to appeal and treating it as a purely legal issue with implications for other digital-asset-related cases. A key focus of the appeal is the judge’s prior decision on programmatic sales and other XRP distributions.
