Rippleā€™s Chief Legal Officer, Stuart Alderoty, criticised the U.S. regulatory framework for digital assets at the Point Zero Forum in Zurich.

He highlighted the inconsistency and overreach of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), which he believes hinders the growth and adoption of digital assets.

Alderoty stressed that good regulation should lead to predictable results, but the U.S. fails in this regard compared to global counterparts.

Ripple recently released 1 billion XRP (CRYPTO:XRP) from escrow, impacting market dynamics. 

The crypto community continues to call for clearer, more consistent regulations to foster innovation and investor protection.
