Crypto vs. SEC: The Crackdown on Coinbase & Binance

Episode #74

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is cracking down once again on crypto exchanges. Early last week, the SEC took aim at Binance and Coinbase — two of the most powerful forces in the world of cryptocurrencies — for allegedly breaching its rules.
