LCXwire has published a new article entitled “LCX Token Declared A Security By SEC | Are All Crypto Exchanges Now Unregistered Agents?”, which sheds light on the most important aspects of the recent SEC Enforcement Action Against Nine Utility Tokens for crypto investors and traders. Anyone interested in investing in the crypto marketplace and other interested individuals can view the full article at https://lcxwire.com/lcx-token-declared-a-security-by-sec-are-all-crypto-exchanges-now-unregistered-agents/
The article includes several interesting pieces of information, one in particular is that the SEC recently declared 9 utility token cryptoassets were “securities” in a complaint relating to insider trading violations (Wahi Complaint). This should be of particular interest to crypto investors and traders because the SEC’s assertion in the Wahi Complaint may cause exchanges and investment funds to reconsider prior reasonable judgments made, consistent with the Framework, that the assets were not securities. This may result in firms being required to revisit disclosure, sell client holdings, and amend or adopt compliance policies and procedures.
One of the most important pieces of information the article tries to convey and communicate is this appears to be the first clear communication from the SEC that it views these specific tokens as securities. The best example of this is perhaps found in the following extract:
‘With a major announcement by the SEC and DOJ of an SEC Enforcement Action declaring nine utility tokens as securities, the crypto marketplace has been severely shaken. The action has already resulted in an announcement by Binance.US of a delisting of the AMP token effective August 15, 2022. What impact the SEC announcement has on the LCX token and the other eight utility tokens and the exchanges within the crypto marketplace has yet to be seen.’
In discussing the article’s creation, Mal Packer, staff writer at LCXwire said:
“LCXwire is highlighting the significance of the SEC Enforcement Action and the potential impact this action may have on LCX, the other eight utilty tokens identified as securities, every crypto exchange listing any of these nine utility tokens, and finally all crypto investors.”
