Analysts predict Ripple price rally after victory in recent court ruling
Jake Chervinsky, the head of Policy at the US Blockchain Association, a crypto advocacy firm, commends that Ripple continues to defend itself against the Securities & Exchange Commission’s (SEC) allegations.
Chervinsky is considered an expert on crypto regulation. The advocate believes that Ripple has given the SEC the most trouble, more than any other cryptocurrency projects and Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla.
Chervinsky was quoted as saying:
No matter your view on Ripple, two things seem clear: They’re giving the SEC more trouble than anyone in crypto, maybe more than anyone period, including Elon [Musk, CEO of Tesla and SpaceX]. They’re the leading dispute on securities law, if only because they’ll fight to the death unlike those who caved & settled.
Ripple’s legal tussle with the regulator has set a precedent for the entire crypto industry.
