Attack on Binance and CZ: The SEC also goes after ADA

What does the SEC really want by shaking Binance? The collapse of the crypto industry or the regulation of it? Many see the recent initiatives of Gary Gensler and his team as the development ofa visceral hatred towards the crypto-sphere. Because in addition to the largest exchange in the world, they have also decided to attack 10 tokens traded on the secondary market like Cardano’s ADA.

ADA, a “security” in the eyes of the SEC

The news of a attack on Binance and CZ was falling like lightning in the crypto community yesterday. Among the charges put forward by the SEC is the ease of access granted to Americans wishing to trade on

General outrage in the community

Thus, as soon as he apprehended the attack against Binance and its ADA token, he published a long tweet which can be summed up in one denunciation of a desire to control our lives by the government and a call for unity against “authoritarianism”.
