星空财经消息，美国时间28日，Ripple于其官网发布了Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse和Ripple行政总裁兼联合创始人Chris Larsen联名致美国国会的公开信。
在该公开信中Ripple表示： 1. 区块链和数字货币行业的许多人都是负责任的参与者。我们对美国和国际法负责。我们有责任为更大的利益服务。 2. 我们认为，数字货币有机会补充美元等现有货币，而不是取代它们。 3. 我们敦促你们支持那些使美国技术创新公司处于有利地位的监管规定，并以一种能识别其根本区别的方式对数字货币进行分类——而非笼统地对它们进行描述。
Please do not paint us with a broad brush.
Many in the blockchain and digital currency industry are responsible actors. We are responsible to U.S. and international law. We are responsible to serving the greater good.
We don’t take for granted the vital role of central banks in issuing currencies and setting monetary policy in concert with the complex dynamics of economies around the world. For centuries, governments have been well suited for the job because paramount to the acceptance of any currency is trust.
Companies like ours in the United States, and others abroad, employ these innovations in partnership with regulated financial institutions to enable the world to move money across borders like it already moves information—efficiently, reliably, inexpensively. In our view, digital currencies have the opportunity to complement existing currencies like the U.S. dollar—not replace them.
Without a doubt, blockchain and digital currencies will engender greater financial inclusion and economic growth not unlike the internet’s historic impact. As it did with the internet, the U.S. has the chance to lead the way, nurturing this economic opportunity while continuing to protect privacy and stability.
We urge you to support regulation that does not disadvantage U.S. companies using these technologies to innovate responsibly, and classifies digital currencies in a way that recognizes their fundamental differences—not painting them with a broad brush.
Without regulatory clarity, we risk pushing the innovation, tax revenue and jobs that these new technologies create overseas.
You have the world’s attention. Let’s come together and seize the moment.
