What is the essence of the accusations? The SEC believes that the tZERO security token trading platform has failed to fully disclose information about the use of the trading data outside the US. The court proceedings resulted in a hefty fine of $800 000. The tZERO did not deny the SEC's accusations and agreed to pay the fine and rectify the irregularities in the platform's operations.

It should be noted that earlier the SEC head Gary Gensler called for creating an “environment of trust” in the cryptocurrency market, comparing the current situation to the “Free Banking Era” in the Wild West from 1837 to 1863.
