Coinbase faces SEC probe

Coinbase, $COIN, is facing an SEC probe into whether it let Americans trade digital assets that should have been registered as securities, per Bloomberg.

The SEC’s scrutiny of Coinbase has increased since the platform expanded the number of tokens in which it offers trading, said two of the people, who asked not to be named because the inquiry hasn’t been disclosed publicly. The probe by the SEC’s enforcement unit predates the agency’s investigation into an alleged insider trading scheme that led the regulator last week to sue a former Coinbase manager and two other people.
