Although the lawsuit between the two parties is still ongoing, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is still demanding Ripple Labs to pay a fine of up to $2 billion.

The legal storm between Ripple and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is reaching its peak of tension. In a recent development, the SEC has proposed a staggering $2 billion fine against Ripple Labs – a record penalty second only to the Binance case.

This information was disclosed by Ripple’s General Counsel Stuart Alderoty himself. According to him, the massive fine proposal is currently under seal by the court but will be officially unveiled on March 26th.

This is the latest move by the SEC in the ongoing battle since 2020, where they accused Ripple of unlawfully selling securities in the form of XRP tokens. Despite a partially favorable ruling from the federal court, the SEC remains steadfast in pursuing the lawsuit.

Alderoty declared that Ripple will fight to the end, rebutting the SEC’s request for a hefty fine in April. The legal battle between the two parties has escalated to new heights, with the potential $2 billion fine looming as a decisive blow.

The SEC’s action is part of Chairman Gary Gensler’s cryptocurrency crackdown campaign over the past two years. Rumors of Ethereum being the next target are also circulating. The heat of the fight against cryptocurrencies shows no signs of cooling down.
