FOX Business Correspondent Warns XRP Investors Amidst Legal Battle with SEC

Charles Gasparino, a FOX Business correspondent, has sounded a cautionary note for XRP investors amidst the ongoing legal dispute between Ripple Labs and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

Gasparino emphasized the financial risks associated with XRP holdings in light of the legal uncertainties surrounding the token.

Gasparino suggested that the SEC could pursue an appeal against Judge Analisa Torres’ ruling, which found Ripple guilty of violating federal securities laws in its sale of XRP to institutional investors but not retail investors.

He speculated that SEC Chairman Gary Gensler’s classification of Ethereum as a security could spur the agency to aggressively pursue an appeal in the Ripple case.

Gasparino warned that if the SEC succeeds in overturning the ruling, XRP investors may not see significant returns, and the token’s price could plummet.

While acknowledging Torres’ previous denial of the SEC’s appeal, Gasparino noted the possibility of the SEC challenging the case further after the April trial.

In a separate post, Gasparino discussed BlackRock’s reluctance to introduce a spot XRP exchange-traded fund (ETF). He attributed BlackRock’s cautious stance to the regulatory uncertainties surrounding XRP, describing the decision as “disappointing.”

Robert Mitchnick, BlackRock’s head of digital assets, reaffirmed Bitcoin as the company’s primary focus, emphasizing its importance over other cryptocurrencies like XRP.
