Garlinghouse described the case as the pacemaker for the crypto community in the United States. So, he thinks its outcome will have a great impact on both the U.S. and the crypto industry worldwide.

Brad Garlinghouse noted:

“Federal judges work at their own pace… optimistically we’re talking about 3-4 months, pessimistically it could be longer than that.”

Speaking about former SEC Division Director William Hinman’s 2018 speech regarding the security status of Ethereum (ETH), Ripple CEO affirmed that the Judge has ordered the SEC to release the details on six occasions.

Is There Any Possibility For A Settlement?
