How reasonable is it to consider the possibility that Ripple's IPO move was coordinated with the SEC to accommodate a documented "stamp of approval" related to the securities question? Perhaps a statement in the IPO approval (if that exists?) stating or inferring a review has shown no issues with existing regulations (or in a best case scenario, more direct than that). I'm not sure how the SEC works with the IPO process, or if there is opportunity for that language. But given that we know Ripple has worked with the SEC on this issue extensively, would it be possible that both parties saw this as a viable solution to the legal limbo? Or at least one that gives Ripple a strong case legally? This may have been discussed elsewhere. If it has been in detail, I apologize.
Citing anonymous sources familiar with the matter, Bloomberg reports that the New York-based firm has approached advisers holding an initial public offering (IPO). The sources also said that potential buyers have approached the company seeking to purchase it outright. I wonder if Ripple was one of the prospective buyers? What do you guys think? After all, Brad did mention in a Financial Times article in October 2017 that Ripple could use its 15 billion XRP war chest (market cap of XRP at that time) to "acquire or partner with rivals"!!!!
