Ripple Labs Biggest Financial Backers Lost its Bid to Reclaim $175M Investment

March 8, 2021


One of Ripple Labs’ biggest monetary backers lost its offer to recover its $175 million investment in the blockchain firm. A Delaware court denied the multi-billion asset director Tetragon Financial Group’s solicitation to reclaim its Ripple value for money during a progressing legal battle in court among Ripple and the U.S. Security and Exchange Commission (SEC).


United Kingdom (U.K.) based Tetragon recorded suit in January to recover its portion of the $200 million Series C financing of the blockchain organization it drove in 2019. The suit additionally expected to freeze Ripple’s liquid resources until it settled up. Presently it shows up Ripple will not need to, with a Delaware Chancery Court judge on Friday dismissing the offended plaintiff’s case. Ripple called the lawsuit meritless at the start, saying at the time Tetragon possibly had a case if the SEC decided XRP to be a security. 


The particulars of the underlying investment gave Tetragon the option to reclaim its Ripple value if XRP was discovered to be a security. XRP is no greater security after the SEC recorded the enforcement activity than it was under the steady gaze of it, the court expressed, as cited in a Ripple during a public statement. The enforcement action, paradoxically, poses that inquiry. The inquiry isn’t yet settled, so an assurance has not yet been made. The filings were not promptly accessible at press time.


Let’s call the Tetragon’s claim what it is a shrewd move to exploit the SEC’s charges. What has consistently been clear and made thus, considerably more, today is that the SEC actually needs to attempt to demonstrate their case in Court, which we don’t really accept that they will actually able to do, Ripple said in an articulation.
