SEC’s Cryptocurrency Suit Could Lead to Securities Regulations

The Wall Street Journal reports that the SEC’s investigation into Ripple’s cryptocurrency XRP could impact cryptocurrency regulation. Among other issues, regulators are looking at Ripple’s earnings in relation to sales of XRP vs other revenue streams.

The ruling may affect cryptocurrency investors who are not immediately well-equipped to deal with securities regulations. The SEC generally has not considered more decentralized cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin to fall under securities laws. XRP, however, is owned and controlled by Ripple, which has opened the door to the SEC’s scrutiny.
