Crypto Market News: Amid an increasingly tougher regulatory scrutiny on crypto businesses from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), verbal attack on the agency is rampant. While executives from the likes of Grayscale and Binance have been engaging is sharp criticism of SEC Chair Gary Gensler, Ripple, the company fighting SEC in the XRP lawsuit, is onto a slightly different debate.

The debate around XRP not being a security arose again in the wake of Coinbase’s formal response to the SEC’s Wells notice saying the platform followed the securities laws in its United States operations. This, according to the XRP community, indirectly indicates that XRP was also not trading as a security before Coinbase delisted the altcoin in 2020 over the SEC lawsuit.
