What is known about the SEC’s work? In recent months, the regulator’s officials have sent requests to token creators and crypto exchanges asking for more information about their activities.

This investigation, as Bloomberg notes, is the SEC’s latest attempt to ensure that the cryptocurrency market complies with market regulations. In February, the commission and US regulators imposed a record $100 million fine on BlockFi, a popular virtual currency exchange, for failing to register its products under regulations.
