Lawmakers vs. the SEC vs. Binance: Law Decoded


The SEC doesn’t have it all its own way in a court struggle with Binance.US and faces more media pressure.

Once again, the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) became the week’s headliner. Its intention to freeze the entirety of Binance.US’s assets got a reality check from U.S. district court Judge Amy Berman Jackson, who advised the regulator and the crypto exchange to negotiate a deal bilaterally. 


The resulting agreement outlines measures for Binance.US to prevent any access by Binance officials to private keys of wallets, hardware wallets or root access to Binance.US’s Amazon Web Services tools. Additionally, the U.S.-based crypto trading platform will disclose comprehensive information on business expenses, including estimated costs, in the coming weeks.

Meanwhile, documents finally released publicly last week confirm that back in 2018, SEC employees were concerned that the speech of one of the regulator’s top executives, Bill Hinman, might undermine the idea that Ether is security. Sticking with 2018, a newly resurfaced video of the now SEC Chair Gary Gensler is also doing a massive disservice to him. In a 2018 speech from an event hosted by Bloomberg for institutional investors, Gensler confidently states: “Over 70% of the crypto market is Bitcoin . Why did I name those four? They’re not securities.”

Gensler’s life will surely not be easy in the near future, as Representative Warren Davidson has introduced the SEC Stabilization Act to the U.S. House of Representatives. One of the bill’s main provisions is to fire “a tyrannical Chairman” — a position that Gensler currently occupies. However, as history shows, firing the SEC’s chair might not be easy for Congress.CRYPTOCASTER® - DECENTRALIZED FREEDOM!

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. 

Around the world, readers can access the CryptoCaster’s paywall-free journalism because of our unique reader-supported model. That’s because of people like you. Our readers keep us independent, beholden to no outside influence and accessible to everyone – whether they can afford to pay for news and information, or not.

We thankyou for the on-going support our readers have bestowed monetarily.
