Welcome to Chain Reaction. 

A podcast that unpacks and dives deep into the latest trends, drama and news in crypto with some of the biggest names in the industry to break things down block by block for the crypto curious. 

This week we have a bonus episode. Jacquelyn interviewed Stu Alderoty, chief legal officer of Ripple Labs. 

Stu spent most of his career working for traditional financial institutions in legal roles at firms like CIT Group, American Express and HSBC and left that world in 2019 to join Ripple.

Ripple has been around since 2012, but has been making headlines lately for the recent federal court ruling that stated the XRP token, which is linked to Ripple, is not a security when sold to the general public but can be treated as a security for past XRP sales to institutional clients. 

We broke down the nitty gritty details of the U.S. District Court of the Southern District of New York federal court ruling for Ripple and what it means for the company, XRP token and crypto ecosystem. 

We also talked about: 

  • Securities vs. commodities 
  • Ripple’s SEC lawsuit 
  • Future regulation and clarity 
  • Advice for other startups
