However, the firm has put any plans for an IPO on hold for now, Garlinghouse said. Garlinghouse told CNBC in 2022 that Ripple, the company behind the cryptocurrency XRP , will explore a public listing after its lawsuit with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission ends. The Ripple CEO said his company has not gone public in the U.S. yet because of the SEC's actions. The SEC sued Coinbase last year alleging that the company was acting as an unregistered broker and exchange.

The CEO of blockchain company Ripple has some strong words for the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Brad Garlinghouse told CNBC's Dan Murphy at the company's Ripple Swell conference in Dubai that he thinks the agency has lost sight of one of its key tasks as a regulator. "I think the SEC, in my opinion, has lost sight of their mission to protect investors. The SEC in 2020 accused Ripple and its executives of conducting a $1.3 billion securities fraud via sales of XRP to retail investors. Then, in October, the SEC dropped its securities law violation charges against Garlinghouse and Ripple executive Chris Larsen.

Photo: Benjamin Girette/Bloomberg NewsWASHINGTON—The Securities and Exchange Commission on Thursday said it would drop its lawsuit against two cryptocurrency executives who oversaw $1.5 billion in sales of a digital coin known as XRP, in a move that boosts the industry’s battle against traditional regulation. The dismissal of civil claims against Brad Garlinghouse and Chris Larsen , who were sued for assisting Ripple Labs’s sales, will likely encourage wealthy crypto defendants to fight regulators in court. At the same time, the SEC’s withdrawal from the case preserves its resources for bigger lawsuits it has filed against crypto giants Coinbase and Binance.

The seal of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is seen at their headquarters in Washington, D.C., U.S., May 12, 2021. In its December 2020 lawsuit, the SEC accused Ripple of illegally raising more than $1.3 billion in an unregistered securities offering by selling XRP. U.S. District Judge Analisa Torres in Manhattan granted Ripple a partial win in the case in July, finding that sales of XRP on public exchanges were not unregistered securities offerings. The SEC's claims against Garlinghouse and Larsen over their role in those sales were to be tried before a jury. Torres' July ruling against the SEC was a rare setback in the regulator's long-runnning crackdown on the industry.

Founded in 2021 by Scott Purcell, an entrepreneur with a background in equity and debt crowdfunding, Fortress Trust aims to help large enterprises interact with digital currencies. The company uses a blockchain-based messaging system, akin to SWIFT, to approve speedy transactions between a network of banks and other financial institutions. A Ripple spokesperson declined to comment on the size of the deal but said that it is less than the sum Ripple paid to buy Metaco. Ripple also obtained a Nevada trust with its acquisition of Fortress Trust, adding to its growing list of regulatory permits globally. The company told CNBC previously it was also looking to get an e-money license with the Irish central bank.

REUTERS/Andrew Kelly/File PhotoNEW YORK, Aug 9 (Reuters) - The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission plans to appeal a recent court decision involving Ripple Labs that was a setback for the agency's efforts to oversee cryptocurrency markets. The SEC said an appeal could address legal issues on which there was "substantial ground for differences of opinion." Torres' decision was not a total victory for Ripple, as she found that it violated securities laws by selling XRP to institutional investors. The judge must decide whether to let the SEC appeal her decision, and put the case on hold. Ripple, and lawyers for Ripple, Garlinghouse and Larsen did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

In this photo illustration, a visual representation of the digital Cryptocurrency Ripple is displayed on January 30, 2018 in Paris, France. Ripple's XRP token went up 68% in the last 24 hours, leading a wider rally of major-cap altcoins, as crypto traders digest a key ruling that could stifle U.S. regulator efforts to stamp out digital asset trading. All four tokens were recently singled out as securities in the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission's formal suits against popular crypto retail trading exchanges, including Binance and Coinbase . But the Thursday summary judgement from U.S. District Judge Analisa Torres calls that classification into question. Ripple maintained that its token is not a security — triggering ongoing confusion over which digital coins fall into which regulatory bucket.

CompaniesLaw Firms Ripple Labs Inc FollowCoinbase Global Inc FollowJuly 13 (Reuters) - Ripple Labs Inc did not violate federal securities law by selling its XRP token on public exchanges, a U.S. judge ruled on Thursday, a landmark legal victory for the cryptocurrency industry that sent the value of XRP soaring. An SEC spokesperson said the agency was pleased with part of the ruling in which the judge held that Ripple violated federal securities law by selling XRP directly to sophisticated investors. XRP sales on cryptocurrency platforms by Garlinghouse and co-founder and former CEO Chris Larsen, and other distributions including compensation to employees also did not involve securities, Torres ruled. PARTIAL WIN FOR THE SECThe SEC won a partial victory as Torres found the company's $728.9 million of XRP sales to hedge funds and other sophisticated buyers amounted to unregistered sales of securities. Both the Ripple and Coinbase cases focus on registration requirements and whether certain digital assets are securities under U.S. law.

XRP soared as much as 61% on Thursday after a US judge said certain aspects of the sale of the token did not break federal securities laws. The SEC had sued Ripple for the sale of its XRP token in 2020 for the failure to register XRP as a security. US District Judge for the Southern District of New York Analisa Torres said the XRP token is "not necessarily a security on its face." But there are multiple facets of the ruling and it gets complicated depending on the type of sale of XRP. A motion for summary judgement filed by the SEC in its "aiding and abetting" allegations against Garlinghouse and Larsen was denied.

Blockchain company Ripple said Thursday it received in-principle regulatory approval to operate in Singapore, in a rare moment of good news for the cryptocurrency industry globally as it faces tightening policy back home in the United States. Ripple said that it was granted in-principle approval of a Major Payment Institution Licence from the Monetary Authority of Singapore, the country's central bank. But Ripple also operates a blockchain-based international messaging system called RippleNet to facilitate massive transfers of funds between banks and other financial institutions, similar to the global interbank messaging system SWIFT. Ripple denies the SEC allegations, contending that XRP is a currency rather than a security that would be subject to strict rules. Singapore is one of the largest currency corridors from which Ripple sends money across borders using XRP, the company said in a press release.
