XRP Lawyer Accuses SEC of Bias in Favor of Ethereum

XRP Lawyer Accuses SEC of Bias in Favor of Ethereum

Crypto lawyer Bill Morgan accuses SEC and former official William Hinman of favoring Ethereum over XRP.

Bill Morgan’s allegations coincide with increased concern over William Hinman’s behavior during his SEC tenure. The Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) has filed complaints with allegations of conflict of interests and unethical conduct.

CPAC’s Andrew Langer calls for an investigation into Hinman’s actions, pointing out his ties to a law firm with links to Ethereum.

They have accused him of lack of bias, and the speech that he gave to ease regulatory pressure on Ethereum in 2018 has raised questions about his impartiality.

Hinman’s ensuing career moves additionally see the SEC’s regulatory credibility start to crumble.

The accusations underscore more general concerns about regulatory favoritism and the need for transparency in the cryptocurrency industry.

The results of investigations into Hinman’s practices could have important implications for future regulatory decisions.
