U.S. Senator Cynthia Lummis took to Twitter to highlight the importance of Judge Analisa Torres’ recent court ruling declaring that Ripple’s XRP (XRP) token should not be considered a security when sold on a digital asset exchange. Lummis emphasized that the ruling highlights the urgent need for Congress to create a comprehensive and clear regulatory framework for cryptocurrencies.
