Binance US Is Facing A Class-Action Lawsuit For the Sale Of UST And LUNA

The sister firm of Binance (the worldwide crypto exchange), Binance.US, is undergoing a class-action legal case filed by investors over selling TerraUSD (UST) and LUNA. A set of investors submitted a class-action legal case in California’s Northern District on Monday, accusing that the exchange retailed unregistered securities in UST and LUNA to investors by misleading them into purchasing the tokens.

The law companies named Dontzin Nagy & Fleissig and Roche Freedman submitted the legal case on the behalf of many investors who were deprived of their funds during the previous UST and LUNA convoluted collapse. In the lawsuit, it was accused that Binance.US does not have the status of a registered broker-dealer to operate within the U.S. and hence it infringes the securities laws of the United States.

The case petitioners alleged that the crypto exchange has been meaningfully promoting a vulnerable project which had the investment of the parent firm formerly. The filing of the lawsuit brought to the front that the exchange not just assisted as well as endorsed a security token, however, the parent firm thereof additionally listed LUNA 2.0’s second version following the first one’s failure.

Apart from this, the case put an accusation on the exchange that it was falsely advertising, referring to their assertions that UST was backed by fiat currency, on which considerable criticism has been made following the crash. As noted in a chunk of the lawsuit, the failure of “Binance.U.S.” to abide by the securities laws, as well as the UST’s false advertisements by it, have paved the way for catastrophic consequences for the consumers of Binance U.S.

The case’s plaintiffs have requested a trial by judges for the entirety of the allegations that are considered to be trialed. Roche freedman’s founder, Kyle Roche, had formerly appealed to the investors of LUNA to interact with the company if LUNA is purchased by them on any of the prominent exchanges of cryptocurrency in the United States. In this way, the legal case confronting Binance could be initiated before several others.

While the South Korea-based investors submitted the legal case to confront the Terra project’s founders in the very week when it tanked, the most recent lawsuit opposing Binance.US counts as the first across America. Examining the former Twitter post shared by the law company engaged with the legal case, the rest of the crypto exchanges registered in America might experience such lawsuits in the coming time.
