Crypto exchange platform Coinbase is being sued by the Securities and Exchange Commission for allegedly operating as an unregistered securities exchange. Yahoo Finance caught up with various experts, analysts, and reporters to discuss the impact on the crypto market. Yahoo Finance's Jennifer Schonberger broke down the SEC's allegations against Coinbase. Schonberger said, "The SEC is suing Coinbase this morning in the Southern District of New York for failing to register its trading platform with the agency alleging that it was an unregistered National Securities Exchange broker and clearing agency." Mark Palmer, Berenberg Capital Markets Senior Equity Research Analyst – Fintech and Digital Assets, discussed the implications of the lawsuit and whether Coinbase (COIN) may be able to pivot its operations overseas. Palmer said, "That really is one of the big questions now with regard to Coinbase, is will it be able to pivot overseas? In the first quarter, the US represented about 86% of Coinbase's net revenue. That is not an easy pivot to execute." Delta Blockchain Fund General Partner Kavita Gupta discussed the questions digital asset holders have around crypto regulation. Gupta said, "What are actually securities and not securities? And does the SEC actually create a pathway and say this is how it should work?" Yahoo Finance legal reporter Alexis Keenan explained the SEC's suit against Coinbase in detail. Keenan said, "The agency says it's acting as a broker, an exchange, a clearing agency, and also a seller of securities. They say as a result, Coinbase is then evading disclosure laws that were specifically set up to protect consumers by Congress." Yahoo Finance markets reporter Jared Blikre took a look at the market reaction and what it could mean for the crypto industry. Blikre said, "The bottom line here is if the SEC doesn't completely shut down Binance and Coinbase, then it's probably not going to derail crypto."
