SEC Ramps Up Legal Warfare Against Binance and CEO Zhao in High-Stakes Showdown

"Binance Faces Legal Battle as SEC Accuses Exchange of Intentional Violation of Securities Laws"

Cybersecurity expert John Reed Stark has shed light on the recent developments surrounding Binance in a post today. He shared a screenshot of the Securities and Exchange Commission’s (SEC) opposition to Binance’s unlicensed operations in the United States. Stark believes that Binance is likely to face a legal defeat based on the strong arguments presented by the SEC. The regulatory body has accused Binance of intentionally violating federal securities laws by acting as a broker, dealer exchange, and clearing agency.

According to the document, the SEC alleges that Binance’s CEO, Changpeng Zhao, and the company itself orchestrated a scheme to falsely portray their non-operation in the U.S., while secretly profiting from the country’s capital markets. The SEC also claims that Binance exerted such control over its operations that employees felt manipulated. These serious allegations add to the complexity of the ongoing lawsuit between the SEC and Binance, Zhao, and Binance.US.

The lawsuit was initially filed in June 2023, with the SEC accusing Binance of listing unregistered securities. However, it has since evolved into a dispute concerning access to customer funds in the United States. Despite the mounting accusations, Binance maintains that the SEC is exceeding its jurisdiction.
