Se informa que Coinbase se enfrenta a una investigación de la SEC por enumerar valores no registrados

Coinbase, the U.S.-based cryptocurrency exchange, is reportedly facing a probe from the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEGUNDO) over the listing of several crypto assets on its platform. The investigation, according to three people with ostensible knowledge of the matter, is examining whether the exchange has been listing assets that can be classified as unregistered securities.

Coinbase Reportedly Under SEC Scrutiny

Coinbase, a leading U.S.-based cryptocurrency exchange, es reportedly facing increased scrutiny from the SEC due to the expansion of the number of tokens listed on its platform. According to three people “familiar with the matter,” the SEC will be investigating whether the exchange has allowed American customers to trade cryptocurrency assets that can be considered unregistered securities.

The reported investigation was established at an earlier date, before another probe which resulted in the SEC filing insider trading charges against a former Coinbase product manager, his brother, and his friend. These actions allowed them to profit by more than $1.1 millón, according to the SEC.

In this probe, the SEC alleged that nine of the cryptocurrency assets listed on Coinbase’s platforms are securities, these being AMP, RLY, DDX, XYO, RGT, LCX, POWR, DFX, and KROM. Sin embargo, Coinbase’s chief legal officer, Pablo Grewal, has officially denied these allegations, claiming that the exchange does not list securities. Grewal also filed a petition to the SEC to issue clear rules regarding digital asset securities on July 21.

More Woes
