In February 2023, the SEC sued Paxos for the same allegation against $BUSD ***Market Impact*** Almost immediately, the Crypto market reacted negatively as the entire market crashed. sell off. However, there seems to be a group of parties benefiting from this sell-off. 8 hours before the announcement, there was a huge $BNB short position worth $20M.

The crypto market will get used to news like this over time, but with Binance, the number one spot is now more shaky than ever.
