Coinbase challenges SEC's crypto authority in last attempt to dismiss regulator's lawsuit

Coinbase challenges SEC’s crypto authority in last attempt to dismiss regulator’s lawsuit

Coinbase has argued that the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) exceeded its authority by classifying cryptocurrencies listed on the exchange as securities. In a recent filing, Coinbase criticized the SEC’s definition of a security as being too broad and claimed that the cryptocurrencies in question are not under the regulator’s jurisdiction. The exchange accused the SEC of a “radical expansion” of its authority and argued that only Congress has the power to do so. Coinbase’s filing is in response to the SEC’s request to reject Coinbase’s motion to dismiss the lawsuit. The SEC sued Coinbase in June, alleging that the exchange violated securities laws by listing tokens without registering with the regulator. The case is currently overseen by Judge Katherine Polk Failla, who may call for oral arguments before issuing a judgment or deciding to dismiss the case or proceed with a jury trial.
