SEC's Classification of So-Called Crypto Securities Amounts to $98 Billion in Combined Value

Throughout the last year, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has identified numerous crypto assets as securities in cases involving Binance, Bittrex, Coinbase, Terra’s Do Kwon, Tron’s Justin Sun, and several more. The aggregate worth of these prominent digital assets, considered securities, currently amounts to $98 billion, making up over 8% of the cryptocurrency market.

Alleged Crypto Securities Identified by SEC Account for 8% of Crypto Economy

The SEC has classified a significant number of crypto assets as securities within its purview; these include decentraland (MANA), dash (DASH), algorand (ALGO), beaxy token (BXY), solana (SOL), binance coin (BNB), cardano (ADA), and several others. Combined, these purported security designations represent a total value of $98 billion as of Wednesday. Moreover, within the past 24 hours, these coins registered approximately $4.47 billion in global trading volume.

The top five crypto assets deemed securities, in the SEC’s view, by market valuation include binance coin, cardano, solana, tron, and polygon. These account for $72.93 billion of the overall $98 billion figure or 74.41%. Following polygon in terms of the highest valuations among supposed crypto securities are ton coin, binance usd, cosmos, filecoin, internet computer, near protocol, algorand, and sandbox.

These eight tokens represent $18.54 billion in value or 18.91% of the cumulative $98 billion. This implies that the leading 13 alleged crypto securities constitute 93.32% of the market value of the 66 classified.

Some tokens cited in this list like Mirror Protocol’s synthetic stock tokens possess no tangible worth but were still regarded as securities by the SEC along with luna classic (LUNC) and terrausd classic (USTC). Out of all tokens responsible for 93% of the purported crypto securities lists’ value, only two experienced losses within the past seven days. BNB dropped 2.37% this past week, while internet computer declined by 2.02%.

Though the SEC has deemed these crypto assets as securities, this doesn’t mean they actually are. Recently, Ripple Labs secured a partial victory concerning its crypto asset’s programmatic sales. Binance, Coinbase, Bittrex, and others have also been fighting the SEC in court; the outcomes of these cases may provide additional clarity.

While the crypto assets classified as securities by the regulator initially witnessed significant downturns following the SEC’s disclosure, most of these assets have reversed course and recorded gains since the recent XRP ruling.

What impact do you think the SEC’s classification of these crypto assets as securities will have on the future of the cryptocurrency market?
