This move by the regulatory authority has sparked a heated debate between prominent figures in the crypto industry.

Renowned pro-XRP lawyer Fred Rispoli believes that PayPal's response to the SEC's subpoena will be a defining moment for the company. He suggests that while complying with the regulatory request might demonstrate weakness and cowardice, challenging the validity of the subpoena in court would require bravery and intelligence. 

Rispoli emphasizes the importance of setting expectations with the SEC, indicating that future crypto-related battles should be fought without any constraints.

On the other side of the debate, SEC veteran Marc Fagel dismissed any possibility of success in challenging the SEC's enforcement action. Fagel points out a past incident involving Tesla CEO Elon Musk, stating that even the wealthiest individuals have succumbed to the SEC's pressure in the past.

Many are calling for a fair evaluation of the situation, questioning the SEC's actions and emphasizing the need for accountability in such high-stakes financial matters.
