XRP News: The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has been alleged of pushing enforcement against the digital asset industry linked firms and leaders. The legal tussles led by the commission have forced the defendants to bear heavy legal fees over time. However, a draft of the crypto bill released by Republican lawmakers might put a pause on the top Watchdogs’ regulatory overreach.
The House Financial Services Committee Chair Patrick McHenry (R-N.C.) and House Agriculture Committee Chair Glenn Thompson (R-Penn.) drafted bill has sent a wave of relief to the crypto industry. It is expected that the Crypto Bill will build a clear framework for digital assets and hold the SEC and CFTC liable for their actions.
Attorney James Murphy called the crypto bill a big opportunity to reform the SEC. As the draft is still under consideration, the attorney suggested an amendment to it. He stated at the end of every lawsuit launched by the commission, the court decides which is the winning party. However, if it comes out that the plaintiff wasn’t able to prove its assertions then it shall pay all attorney’s legal fees borne by the defendants. Read More XRP News Here…
