Ripple的首席执行官将美国证券交易委员会(SEC)的加密透明性比作否认事实的醉汉

2021-8-6 16:14


今天在阿斯彭安全论坛(Aspen Security Forum)上,Ripple的首席执行官布拉德·加林豪斯(Brad Garlinghouse)在谈到美国证券交易委员会(SEC)认为加密货币缺乏透明度时毫不留情。美国证券交易委员会起诉瑞波币,称瑞波币是一种证券。


“在我看来,如果你面对的是一个不想承认自己有酒精问题的酒鬼,那么说我们有确定性,我们有清晰性,就像酒鬼说‘我没有问题’一样。”这是房间里的大象,”加林豪斯说。


昨天,在阿斯本证券论坛的另一次聊天中,美国证券交易委员会主席加里·詹斯勒表示,他认为美国证券交易委员会的立场非常明确,重申了Howey和其他对证券进行分类的测试。他认为,自美国证券交易委员会(SEC)前主席杰伊·克莱顿(Jay Clayton)提出相同立场以来,这种清晰度已经存在了好几年。


詹斯勒昨日表示:“这在很大程度上比一些企业家想的要清楚。”


加林豪斯本人是SEC案件的被告,他没有透露任何案件细节。然而,很明显,这个话题是相关的。鉴于瑞波币330亿美元的市值,加林豪斯有数十亿美元的理由大肆宣扬。


加林豪斯说:“多年来,我认为加密行业一直要求这种清晰度,昨天我们听到的是‘很清楚’。”但几周前,两名SEC委员Peirce和Roisman在一封信中表示,“市场参与者显然缺乏对数字资产及其交易适用证券法的透明度。”


他继续说,“我们不能一直说很清楚,然后试图通过执行来把它弄清楚。你可以看到其他G20市场,比如英国,日本,瑞士,新加坡,他们都很积极参与。这帮助这些市场在这些国家蓬勃发展。如果美国想成为这一领域的领导者,那么我们需要提供明确的信息,而不是表现得很明确。”


Gensler昨天的观点是,这很清楚,但这可能不是企业家所希望的位置。Gensler还提到,美国证券交易委员会在该领域提起了75起诉讼。今天,加林豪斯暗示这些案件与Ripple事件无关。他声称,37起案件与数字资产无关,另外37起案件是首次代币发行(ico),其中许多都是欺诈行为。


“这75家公司中只有一家涉及ICO之外的数字资产。出于明显的原因,我不打算过多谈论这个案子。”原因是第75个案子对Ripple不利。


一位听众问Ripple为什么还没有离开美国。“在某种程度上,答案是,我们是,”加林豪斯回答。由于这些原因,Ripple正在海外招聘更多的员工,并在新加坡和伦敦有重要的业务。Ripple的On Demand Liquidity (ODL)产品使用XRP。任何新的ODL客户现在都是在美国以外的地方。公司。


“作为一家总部设在美国的公司,我希望看到美国在这一领域蓬勃发展。我希望与美国政府合作,提供透明度,提供确定性。但是,我认为,试图通过执法行动来澄清事实并不是正确的答案。”


“我们应该完全放弃美国吗?”我还不愿意去那里。”

Today at the Aspen Security ForumRipple’s CEO Brad Garlinghouse didn’t pull any punches when talking about the Security and Exchange Commission’s (SEC) perceived lack of clarity on cryptocurrencies. The SEC has sued Ripple claiming that XRP is a security.

“In my judgment, if you’re dealing with an alcoholic that doesn’t want to admit they have an alcohol problem, to say that we have certainty, we have clarity, is like the alcoholic saying ‘I don’t have a problem’. This is the elephant in the room,” said Garlinghouse.

Yesterday, in another Aspen Security Forum chat, SEC Chair Gary Gensler stated that he sees the SEC’s position as quite clear, reiterating the Howey and other tests for classifying a security. And he believes that clarity has existed for several years since former SEC Chair Jay Clayton outlined the same position. 

“A lot of this is clearer than some of the entrepreneurs would like to think,” said Gensler yesterday.

Garlinghouse is personally a defendant in the SEC case and didn’t go into any case details. However, clearly, the topic is somewhat relevant. With XRP’s $33 billion market capitalization, Garlinghouse has a few billion reasons to bang the drum.

“For years I think the crypto industry has asked for that clarity, and yesterday we heard ‘it is clear’,” said Garlinghouse. “Yet a few weeks ago we had two (SEC) Commissioners Peirce and Roisman saying (in) a letter, I’ll quote, they said “a decided lack of clarity for market participants around the application of the securities laws to digital assets and their trading.'”

He continued, “We can’t keep saying it is clear and then trying to make it clear through enforcement. You see other G20 markets like the UK, like Japan, like Switzerland, like Singapore who have been proactive and engaged. And that has helped these markets thrive in those countries. If the U.S. wants to be a leader in this space, then we need to provide that clarity and not act like there is clarity.”

Gensler’s point yesterday was that it is clear, but it’s perhaps not the position desired by entrepreneurs. Gensler also mentioned that the SEC has brought 75 cases in the sector. Today Garlinghouse implied those cases were not relevant to the Ripple situation. He claimed that 37 cases did not involve digital assets, and another 37 cases were initial coin offerings (ICOs), many of which were frauds.

“Only one of the 75 involves a digital asset outside of an ICO. And for obvious reasons, I’m not going to talk too much about that case,” he said. The reason being the 75th case is against Ripple. 

A listener asked why Ripple hasn’t moved out of the United States. “To some degree, the answer is we are,” replied Garlinghouse. Ripple is hiring more people abroad for these reasons and has a significant presence in Singapore and London. Ripple’s On Demand Liquidity (ODL) product uses XRP. Any new ODL customers are now onboarded to a non-U.S. company.

“Being a company based here in the United States, I want to see the United States thrive in this area. I want to work with the U.S. government to provide the clarity, to provide the certainty. But trying to provide that clarity through enforcement action is not, I think, the right answer,” said Garlinghouse.

“Should we fully give up on the United States? I’m not willing to go there yet.”
