What transpired was that he vowed to oppose the financial watchdog, claiming that it was allowing dishonest individuals to get away with their crimes rather than safeguarding investors.

He stated on X (formerly Twitter) that he is “just annoyed, disappointed, and ready to fight,” adding, “I’m not surprised.”


Adams underlined his support for Uniswap’s legal business practices and charged the SEC with single-handedly going after respectable business players while ignoring others.

It’s been evident for some time now that the SEC prefers to target established good actors like Uniswap and Coinbase with its attacks, rather than attempting to develop clear, well-informed regulations. all the while allowing crooks like FTX to get away with it,” he said.

Since its launch, Uniswap, which was intended to be an experiment in highly automated, radically decentralized on-chain markets, has expanded dramatically.

“Now, the Uniswap Protocol has handled more than $2 trillion in volume,” Adams stated, highlighting the platform’s influence on the field of financial technology.

Adams’ complaints are in line with the general opinion held by cryptocurrency entrepreneurs that the SEC’s present regulatory strategy is unduly restrictive of start-ups and inadequately transparent.


According to Adams, the goals of the SEC are to safeguard investors, uphold just, efficient, and orderly markets, and encourage capital formation.

He contended that Uniswap performs better than the SEC in these domains.

“I think freedom is worth fighting for,” he wrote as he concluded his post on X, which at the time of writing had almost one million views. DeFi, in my opinion, merits fighting for.

We hope you appreciated this article. Before you move on, I was hoping you would consider taking the step of supporting CryptoCaster’s journalism. 

From  Elon Musk, Larry Fink(BlackRock) to Jamie Dimon(JP Morgan Chase) a number of billionaire owners have a powerful hold on so much of the hidden agendas’ which eludes the public concerning the paradigm shift juxtaposed by cryptocurrency and web3 emerging technologies. CryptoCaster is different. We have no billionaire owner or shareholders to consider. Our journalistic efforts are produced to serve the public interest in crypto development and institutional disruptions – not profit motives.

And we avoid the trap that befalls much U.S. and global media – the tendency, born of a desire to please all sides, to engage in false equivalence in the name of neutrality and retail consumer protection. While fairness and transparency dictates everything we do, we know there is a right and a wrong position in the fight against fiat global banking interest and monetary reconstruction precipitated by the emerging crypto ecology.

When we report on issues like the FTX, Binance and Ripple crisis, we’re not afraid to name who or what is uncovered. And as a crypto sentinel, we’re able to provide a fresh, outsider perspective on the global monetary disruption – one so often missing from the insular American and European media bubble.
