Till now, there is no clarity on whether all cryptocurrencies are securities or commodities. The conclusion of the SEC Vs Ripple case could offer a lot of regulatory clarity for the sector.

Most recently, the Securities Commission of the United States reminded the judge of a federal court to grant a final verdict over the lawsuit from Ripple (XRP). The lawsuit was filed following the claims of the SEC about the violation of securities laws by Ripple Labs. 

This isn’t the first legal tussle; dozens of crypto-based companies have faced legal proceedings from the SEC. The remainder for judgment includes permanent injunctions, disgorgement, prejudgement interest, and civil penalties of approximately $2 Billion.

Market analysts and Ripple executives broadly criticize the commission’s move. Following the redaction, the SEC filed its public version of the remedies brief. 

The majority of allegations are based on the violation of the Securities Act of 1933 and also on the unregistered offerings. Several analysts claim that the brief is solely favoring the regulatory commission. 

In its letter, the SEC notes that it wants Ripple to pay $876,308,712 over the charges of disgorgement, although it also wants the firm to pay $198,150,940 for prejudgement and in civil penalties, it is supposed to pay $876,308,712.

There are speculations that if the judgment over the lawsuit favors the SEC, the market might fall suddenly. Among all cryptocurrencies, the market capitalization of the XRP is the sixth biggest.
