The lawsuits filed by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) against Binance and Coinbase have increased tension between crypto companies and financial regulatory institutions. The SEC’s classification of several cryptocurrencies, including Cardano (ADA), Binance Coin (BNB), Solana (SOL), Polygon (MATIC), and Filecoin (FIL), as securities has led to strong reactions from many figures in the crypto ecosystem towards the SEC. Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong stated that they have expressed the need to delist all crypto assets other than BTC from their platforms because the SEC previously classified them as securities.
Furthermore, recent developments in the XRP case have further intensified the tension between crypto companies and the SEC. Cardano founder Charles Hoskinson also made a statement regarding this issue.
