It specified that it seeks huge interests which have novel questions of law.
What does Chamber seek in the case?
As per Briefs, Chamber urges the court to recognize certain things when the decision is filed in the Ripple Lawsuit. It asks for a well settled law that can be applied to determine if an ICO constitutes an investment contract. The court needs to decide when an investment contract is itself a security.
