Ripple is making new location plans in case of losing the SEC case
While the lawsuit filed by the US Securities and Exchange Commission for the alleged illegal sale of securities has been pending for 1.5 years, Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse announced that the company could relocate from the United States.
In December 2020, the SEC sued Ripple and its two executives, alleging that the company was selling illegal securities while issuing XRP. With the lawsuit taking much longer than expected, Ripple began exploring different options.
Brad Garlinghouse voiced his complaints about the SEC placing inconsistent regulations on crypto companies across the country. According to Garlinghouse, San Francisco-based Ripple Labs is ready to move overseas if it loses its case with the SEC.
