Recent SEC enforcement actions target cryptocurrency businesses that provide "securities without registration." Investors are left with numerous unanswered issues and confusing laws due to the regulatory assault. Below, we present to you the most recent instance of the same.
Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) of the United States is being aggressively regulated by Gary Gensler. According to the SEC Chairman, lending platforms and cryptocurrency exchanges function, and "investment advisers can't rely on them as qualified custodians."
Just because a crypto trading platform claims to be a qualified custodian doesn’t mean that it is. When these platforms fail- something we’ve seen time and again — investors’ assets often have become property of the failed company, leaving investors in line at the bankruptcy court.
The present custody requirement, which mandates that investors' money and assets be held with "qualified custodians," should be followed by advisors in Gensler. According to Gensler, these qualified custodians manage money on behalf of their customers and are subject to SEC crypto regulation under the U.S. Investment Advisers Act of 1940.
The SEC recently proposed federal regulations that would broaden custody laws to cover cryptocurrencies and demand that exchanges register to keep customer assets. These restrictions are in line with this.
However, Gensler warned the advisory committee that the pressures advisers place on their customers may result in "inherent conflicts of interest" due to the use of predictive data technology. Gensler claimed to have requested advice on how to resolve such problems from the agency's personnel.
Recent measures taken by the regulatory body and the Chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission's recent pronouncements have a close relationship.
Andreas Kabs and Do Hyeong Kwon, who are located in Singapore, were recently accused by the SEC of "orchestrating a multi-billion dollar" crypto asset "securities scheme," according to the SEC, who said they were involved in an algorithmic stablecoin and other crypto asset securities.
We allege that Terraform and Do Kwon failed to provide the public with full, fair, and truthful disclosure as required for a host of crypto asset securities, most notably for LUNA and Terra USD.

To this purpose, Coinbase has also started a campaign called "Crypto435" to pay attention to the worries and desires of US-based consumers impacted by the SEC's move, as we have learned from sources. All 435 of the United States' congressional districts will be involved in the campaign.
