Coinbase CLO Reveals SEC Blocked Gensler Files, Alleges Bias

The cryptocurrency sector and U.S. regulatory organizations, particularly the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), have been involved in protracted legal battles. A significant participant in this market, Coinbase, has assumed a leadership position in these disputes. The exchange has filed a vigorous lawsuit to demand more openness from government agencies and to contest what it views as regulatory overreach.

Fresh Information in the SEC v. Coinbase Lawsuit

Coinbase’s Chief Legal Officer, Paul Grewal, has revealed further details regarding the company’s ongoing legal battle with the SEC. A significant obstacle still exists, even though some concerns have been clarified—like the Chevron deference and secondary sales of Binance’s BNB token.

Due to an order from the SEC, SEC Chair Gary Gensler’s communication files are no longer accessible to Coinbase. The significance of these materials lies in Gensler’s remarks to Congress in March 2021, during which he purportedly asserted that the SEC lacked jurisdiction over exchanges for digital assets.

According to Coinbase, these documents are necessary to demonstrate that the SEC’s ongoing enforcement activities might violate due process clauses in the constitution. The SEC and Gensler have refused to provide these correspondences, even in response to official requests.

The recent ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court to reverse the Chevron Deference lends weight to this finding, as it may restrict the SEC’s ability to apply securities rules about cryptocurrencies. The fact that Coinbase intends to pursue this case in court further suggests that the legal disputes surrounding Bitcoin regulation still need to be settled.

The Entry of Coinbase Into Altcoin Futures

Coinbase has applied for regulatory approval for futures contracts tied to multiple altcoins to broaden its product offerings. The exchange introduces derivative products based on different digital assets by the Commodities Futures Trading Commission (CFTC). The submission included proposals for futures contracts linked to DOT, SHIB, XLM, AVA, and LINK. Subject to regulatory approval, trading might start as early as July 15.

This project reflects people’s growing curiosity for cryptocurrencies other than Bitcoin and Ethereum. It also exemplifies Coinbase’s dedication to staying inside legal bounds while introducing new ideas into the quickly developing Bitcoin space. Coinbase hopes to satisfy the growing needs of cryptocurrency traders and investors by requesting clearance for these altcoin-based futures products.
