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
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.
