According to the latest reports, the attack that SEC deployed over Kraken is not without echo. Check out the latest info about the matter below.
SEC’s attack on Kraken
SEC Commissioner Hester Peirce is blasting the agency’s decision to attack the crypto exchange Kraken. They have been forcing the company to eliminate its staking program and pay a $30 million fine.
In an official letter of dissent, Peirce says the SEC’s repeated attempts to regulate the industry via enforcement are bad for the average American investor.
“Today, the SEC shut down Kraken’s staking program and counted it as a win for investors. I disagree and therefore dissent…”
She continued and said the following:
“Instead of taking the path of thinking through staking programs and issuing guidance, we again chose to speak through an enforcement action, purporting to ‘make clear to the marketplace that staking-as-a-service providers must register and provide full, fair, and truthful disclosure and investor protection.’”
She also said this:
“ Using enforcement actions to tell people what the law is in an emerging industry is not an efficient or fair way of regulating.  Moreover, staking services are not uniform, so one-off enforcement actions and cookie-cutter analysis does not cut it.”
