Posted on X since the guilty plea and Fine last year so I was pretty shocked To see this but the concept behind the Project is unlikely to get him into Trouble CZ posted on X yesterday Launching a new project no no new tokens Education project more details soon then Some hours later he posted my next Project at gigle Academy no logo yet Free basic grade 1 to 12ish education For all no Revenue gamified adaptive Read the concept paper at gigal Academy.com we are hiring small team Work directly with CZ the education Platform looks to attract children with An updated format for Learning and is Entirely free for all which is difficult To criticize CZ is quoted on the website Saying building a highquality and sticky Education platform that is entirely free And accessible to all is the most Impactful thing I could do for the next Chapter of my life it's currently Unclear whether this project uses Blockchain in any way but there you are The only question is for how long will He be running the giggle Academy from Behind bars and will he really be able To work directly with People the United States Securities and Exchange commission's case against the Utah based crypto company debox also Known as digital licensing Inc isn't Really one of the flagship cases the SEC

Has against crypto companies that you See lots of coverage of so I'll give you A quick synopsis the SEC alleged that Debt boox was sell unregistered Securities from March 2021 and calling Them node licenses in August last year The SEC announced that it had obtained a Temporary asset freeze a restraining Order and other emergency relief against The firm Tracy coms director of the Sec's Salt Lake Regional Office said we Alleged that debt boox and its Principles lied to investors about Virtually every material aspect of their Unregistered offering of Securities Including by forcely stating that they Were engaged in crypto asset mining There were also several other Allegations made against debt boox by The SEC and the restraining order to Freeze the firm's assets came after the Agency claimed that debt boox had Already sent $720,000 Overseas and would flee to the United Arab Emirates as well as secretly Transfer more assets however things took A turn in December of last year when Judge Robert J Shelby gave a show cause Order now this requires that a party Justifies explains or proves something In court in this case it was the Information that underpinned the asset Freeze well this came to ahead yesterday In a ruling and Bloomberg's James Saar

Wrote on X the SEC just got absolutely Bodied in the debt boox Court decision Paul gr the chief legal officer at Coinbase and kind of the center point of Law in the crypto Universe quoted the Most significant part of Judge Shelby's Rulings so although it's a little bit Confusing I wanted to be transparent in The fact that I will be quoting his Extracts on X of the March 18th filing It reads the commission's above Discussed conduct constitutes a gross Abuse of the power entrusted to it by Congress and substantially undermine the Integrity of these proceedings and the Judicial process the operation of the American Judicial System rests on the Fundamental proposition that every party Who comes before the court is bound by And adheres to the same set of rules it Continues for the reasons explained Below the court imposes sanctions Against the commission for bad faith Conduct in obtaining maintaining and Defending the trro temporary restraining Order and denies the commission's motion To dismiss without prejudice to refile In accordance with the District of Utah's local rules so to summarize the SEC had its motion to dismiss denied as Well as sanctions brought against it for Bad faith and finally the SEC has been Ordered to pay debt boxes legal fees Though on the note of sanctions and

Legal fees as Gru wrote the worst part Of all guess who pays the sanctions you Me and every US taxpayer the commission Just foed a Bill onto every one of us For their litigation misconduct the SEC Has accepted that its actions weren't Forthcoming as they put it but the Regulator argued that a sanction wasn't Appropriate okay that is it for today so Consider yourself informed thank you for Listening to the Risen crypto podcast by Coin Telegraph if you're enjoying these Daily updates please make sure you let Us know by following subscribing or Leaving a review if you have any Thoughts on today's stories please let Us know on X on @ cointelegraph or RK Bags have a great day let's do this Again [Music] Tomorrow

Coinbase
OUR TAKE

Coinbase is a popular cryptocurrency exchange. It makes it easy to buy, sell, and exchange cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin. Coinbase also has a brokerage service that makes it easy to buy Bitcoin as easily as buying stocks through an online broker. However, Coinbase can be expensive due to the fees it charges and its poor customer service.
