SEC v. Ripple is one of the most well-known disputes that has been ongoing for more than two years. The SEC accused Ripple of marketing XRP as a security, numbing XRP’s potential to develop an upward price trajectory over time.

John E Deaton, the founder of CryptoLaw.US, has recently taken to Twitter to address the recent statement by Gary Gensler. The main point of the lawsuit is the allegation that XRP is a security. The very statement has been upheld by Gensler, who states that every cryptocurrency, except Bitcoin, is security.

Pro-Ripple Deaton says there is no consensus to back Gensler’s statement

The pro-Ripple lawyer also mentioned in his tweet that there is no consensus that every cryptocurrency except Bitcoin is security.

“There certainly isn’t a consensus w/in the legal community. Software code is NOT a security. It, like any other asset, can be offered and sold as a security.”

His tweet was a reply to Michael Saylor, an avid Bitcoin supporter, who also commented on Gensler’s statement.

Deaton also slammed Bitcoin maxis, stating that the celebration over Gensler’s comments by them is pathetic. He also mentioned that Gensler is the same guy who prevented a spot Bitcoin ETF while allowing investment banks to trade both short ETFs and futures.
