Ripple and its executives are facing the US SEC which recently won several legal battles against crypto related firms. Attorney Jeremy Hogan highlighted that the commission had early success in the crypto cases as those companies did not raise the “post-loss obligation” issue.

The US SEC in the XRP lawsuit argues that prongs 2, 3 and 4 taken together replace the need for the elements of a legal contract. It suggests that the Howey test doesn’t require a formal contract because the “common enterprise” and “expectation of profits” fit in the contract analysis.

According to Hogan, the commission won the rest of the cases just because stating the purchase of the crypto from a traditional standpoint. These transactions look like a type of investment/purchase that Howey is supposed to capture.

Keeping traditional purchases from centralized sellers in comparison to decentralized makes the way for Ripple here. He added that this is the issue that can save the digital assets in the U.S. A Ripple win on a Howey analysis will prove a nig setback for the SEC. He suggested that the Howey Test isn’t outdated but it needs to be upgraded.
