Appeals court rules Coinbase can’t force SEC to enact new crypto rules

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit sided with the SEC in rejecting Coinbase’s request that the agency develop a new regulatory regime for the cryptocurrency industry.
The appeals court agreed with the SEC’s decision that it was unreasonable to call existing digital asset regulation “unenforceable” and denied that an entirely new regime was needed because “the SEC reasonably sought to reject and refer to several proposed regulations that were designed to address concerns about applying the existing framework to crypto-asset securities.” (Itscryptobasic)
Last week, the U.S. SEC said that Coinbases appeal of its case with the regulator should be rejected. Last month, Coinbase filed an interlocutory appeal after a judges decision to allow the lawsuit involving the SEC and the platform to proceed was not dismissed. In the appeal, Coinbase claimed that there was a disagreement around the Howey test, a 1946 U.S. Supreme Court case often cited by the SEC to determine whether an asset meets the criteria of an investment contract and is therefore a security.
The SEC pushed back on Friday, saying there was “no substantive difference of opinion.”

Binance Research: The Feds delay in cutting interest rates is still beneficial to growth assets such as cryptocurrencies

Binance Research released a new analysis report saying:
1. If the Fed delays cutting interest rates because economic growth remains strong and inflation just takes some time to fall back to 2%, the overall backdrop remains favorable for growth assets such as cryptocurrencies.
2. If economic growth continues to slow, inflation accelerates, and wage growth rises, the Federal Reserve may even need to consider raising interest rates, which could have a negative impact on growth assets such as cryptocurrencies.
The cryptocurrency market as a whole is still up 38% so far this year, suggesting it may not be all doom and gloom.
