In a CoinDesk article republished in Yahoo Finance, litigation & enforcement partner Amy Jane Longo examined how the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission regulator is building a detailed set of implied standards with every cryptocurrency enforcement action, application ruling or policy decision it makes.

Amy notes the SEC has been very deliberate in an attempt to reach more kinds of crypto participants in the market and have an ability to bring enforcement action across a wider range of targets. Apart from its campaign against token issuers and platforms, the SEC has issued enforcement actions on everything from crypto staking services to stablecoins to celebrity promotions.
