Coinbase Responds to SEC Charges

The regulatory body in the United States levied charges against two of the biggest cryptocurrency exchanges in the world. This was a big deal that shook the cryptocurrency world. Furthermore, Brian Armstrong replied to the SEC’s complaint today. 

In a tweet that Armstrong posted, he pointed out a lot of facts about the charges that were made today.

Armstrong did point out that “the SEC reviewed our business and allowed us to become a public company in 2021.”

Moreover, Armstrong also noted that the company “tried, repeatedly, to register securities. Yet, because “there is no path to ‘come in and register,” most of the items they reviewed are just turned down. 

Then, Armstrong talked about “conflicting statements” made by the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Commodities Futures Trading Commission (CFTC). Armstrong pointed out that Congress needed to get involved. In particular, saying that Congress is “introducing new legislation to fix the situation.” 

Armstrong has shown that he is confident in the current position of the cryptocurrency exchange. In the end, he said they would “get the job done.” At the same time, this case’s legal processes should have a huge effect on how digital assets are handled in the United States.
