On this episode of Liberty Curious, Kate Wand sat down with Thomas Hogan, to discuss what he coined the SEC’s illegal war against crypto.

Tom is senior research faculty at AIER and former chair to the senate committee on banking, housing & urban affairs.

Thomas explains how “the SEC has charged crypto exchanges Binance and Coinbase with facilitating the trade of unregistered securities. Yet the opacity of the statute as it pertains to crypto and the SEC’s arbitrary and contradictory application have made compliance with the law impossible.”
