Today’s XRP News: SEC Concludes Ethereum 2.0 Investigation, What Lies Ahead for Ripple

The Impact of SEC vs. Coinbase on Consensys and the Coinbase Motion for Interlocutory Appeal

In a recent development in the ongoing legal battle between the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase, a new twist has emerged with potential implications for the entire crypto industry. Coinbase filed a Motion for Interlocutory Appeal in April 2024 to challenge a court ruling that denied their Motion to Dismiss (MTD).

Judge Failla’s decision not to dismiss the charges against Coinbase for operating as an unregistered securities exchange has raised eyebrows in the crypto community. Pro-crypto lawyer MetaLawMan pointed out the irony in the SEC’s stance, noting that while they argue that a digital asset plus ecosystem equals a security, they have now acknowledged that Ethereum (ETH) is not a security.

The SEC’s decision to end its investigation into Consensys, a prominent player in the crypto space, has further fueled speculation about the potential outcome of the Coinbase case. If Judge Failla takes the SEC’s stance with Consensys into consideration, it could pave the way for a favorable ruling for Coinbase in their Motion for Interlocutory Appeal.

A victory for Coinbase against the SEC would not only be a significant win for the exchange but could also impact the SEC’s efforts to overturn the ruling on the Programmatic Sales of XRP. Ripple’s Chief Legal Officer, Stuart Alderoty, expressed his thoughts on the matter, raising questions about the SEC’s classification of Ethereum and its implications for other projects like MetaMask and staking.

As the legal battle between Coinbase and the SEC continues to unfold, the crypto community is closely watching the developments and their potential impact on the industry as a whole. Stay tuned for more updates on this evolving story.
