However, this was not enough to reach a compromise with Ripple so the SEC subsequently sent the aforementioned letter.

In short, the comparison with Bitcoin and Ether is not an obvious measure of recognition. Therefore, the discovery involving Bitcoin and Ether may not be related to the issues in this case or at least not proportional to the needs of the case.
Furthermore, the SEC pointed out that both Telegram and Kik are trying to argue that their respective tokens will function as a currency, but their argument has been dismissed by the court.
