Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse and ICO Industry
Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse has expressed his belief that “much of what is happening in the ICO market is actually a fraud,” and here he mentions that many ICOs are facing litigation. Although concerned about the actions of many chip sellers, CEO Ripple expects that fraudulent activity to “stop” once regulators catch up with the industry.
Garlinghouse also said chip issuers are currently operating in a legal “gray area” and are expected to catch up with the industry. Ripple’s CEO suggested that futures markets could prove to be similar – because it takes time to develop a regulatory framework for futures markets.
“There are a lot of really fabulous things that get done with digital assets and blockchain technologies to reduce friction, to reduce costs, and enable things that weren’t possible before. I think instead of focusing on those, we’re distracted by what’s going on in this gray area.” – he said.
Ethereum’s Joseph Lubin Has Described China’s ICO Ban as An “Appropriate Approach”.“With China’s political approach to things, and with the fraud that was rampant there, it made a lot of sense for them to pause things a little bit and get a better, deeper understanding of the ecosystem, and scare potential fraud perpetrators,” Lubin said.
