Ripple has a three-pronged approach towards regulation. As put by Sagar Sarbhai in a recent blog on Ripple Insights:
“Ripple believes in collaborating with regulators and working within the existing financial system. Ripple leverages a combination of distributed ledger technology and the digital asset, XRP, to make cross-border payments faster, cheaper and more efficient. We believe regulation will help organizations use digital assets to develop innovative solutions, while also protecting consumers who use these services or invest in digital asset markets.
Ripple has long advocated a three-pronged approach to regulation focused on use-cases, that addresses risks to consumers and also provides guidance to banks on leveraging digital assets. Japan is a prime example of how this kind of progressive and thoughtful regulation can work.”
