Ripple’s CEO Brad Garlinghouse says in Switzerland’s event that we are in talks with SEC for a period of time and that educating of regulators is a “really constructive process”. As he commented:

We’ve been working closely with the SEC over the last year or so to really think about which falls in what box because I think if I hear anything from market participants it’s that we really need clarity.
