Digital Assets Download - Ripple Effects

Microscopes across the crypto digital assets universe have been focused on the US federal court hearing The SEC vs Ripple, one of the most closely watched crypto enforcement actions in the United States. In our headline piece for this Digital Assets Download, our team cuts through the court’s lengthy decision – and the frenzied commentary in the market – to give you a practical analysis on what the rulings mean, and don’t mean, for digital assets markets. Our latest edition also features Mayer Brown insights on efforts to address tax uncertainties affecting investments in digital assets and an update on an innovative regulatory regime being implemented by the Catawba Nation, a Native American tribe in South Carolina.
