Ripple Lead Counsel Stuart Alderoty Slams SEC After BlockFi Formally Files for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Proceedings.
Ripple General Counsel Stuart Alderoty reacts to the announcement of chapter 11 filing by BlockFi, as he slams SEC for its regulation by enforcement policy.
Following the SEC lawsuit and FTX fallout, the crypto exchange has filed a chapter 11 request with the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of New Jersey. The filing is made to save the company from further harm.

BlockFi hopes that the filing will help the exchange in restructuring of future transactions that will maximise the value for stakeholders. Under the restructuring, BlockFi stated, the exchange will act to recover all the obligations owed to it by partners, including the FTX. However, the exchange noted, the recovery of obligations from FTX may get delayed because of the exchange’s recent debacle.
In this regard BlockFi quoted Company’s financial advisor Mark Renzi statement. Mark had stated:
“With the collapse of FTX, the BlockFi management team and board of directors immediately took action to protect clients and the Company,”
BlockFi further stated that under chapter 11 proceedings, first motions filed by the exchange with the Court would be related to the discontinued payment of salaries to the employees together with access to the other employment benefits. BlockFi also stated that they will ask the court for permission to retain key trained employees so that the exchange could carry business operations efficiently, through the chapter 11 process. Moreover, the exchange vowed to curtail internal expenses as well.
Reacting to the announcement Ripple General Counsel Stuart Alderoty summed up the situation as ‘Another SEC “regulation by enforcement” success story.’
