SEC cracks down on cryptos

The crypto crackdown is escalating as the SEC has issued a lawsuit against Coinbase, the second in two days against a major crypto exchange.

Now on Monday, the SEC targeted Binance, the world's largest cryptocurrency exchange. The two cases are of a different nature though with the SEC accusing Binance and its CEO, Chang Ping Tao of operating a "web of deception", while with Coinbase, the regulator considers it is operating illegally because it failed to register as an exchange.

Now, if successful, these lawsuits could trigger a major change in the crypto world, asserting the SEC's jurisdiction over it. So far, the industry's argument is that tokens do not constitute securities and should not be regulated by the SEC.

SEC has been hell bent on putting regulations on crypto. If they succeed i wonder if it well spell well for the crypto space or not cos it is meant to be decentralized and regulations will more likely make it centralized. This should be interesting, we will see how it plays out.

    • I believe DOG, as a memecoin is already quite popular and making a buzz. But as to your question, there are always new entries into the crypto space and when a reputable CEX like Bitget list it, it will substantially expose it to new communities and potential investors...    So all in all, I believe it will be good for DOG and it's future prospects! 
    • Sometimes ago, there was a CEX offering something similar but it was for new users and I even got to know about it a bit too late so I just didn't bother.   I think it's always great to see a CEX like Bitget offering this kinda promo for both new and existing users...    Thanks OP for the early heads up 👍
    • I saw Taiko on my TL yesterday but I didn't particularly pay much attention to it... But it seem they are on a good path and have forged some reputable partnerships along the way...  I have to say it's association with big guns of the industry like OKX, Kucoin etc makes it a good prospect and if you can get some of the coins early in the Bitget Pre-Market trading as you said, it will probably be a good investment in a long run!
