Attorney Morgan faults the SEC’s recent claims against Cardano (ADA).
In a tweet today, attorney Bill Morgan has reacted to the allegations made by the SEC in the Binance lawsuit about Cardano ADA being a security.
According to attorney Morgan, the facts tendered by the SEC to prove that ADA constitutes a security is the weakest argument the commission has ever made in its recent crypto-related cases, including Binance, Bittrex, and Wahi.
“Of all the facts alleged about the several so-called digital asset securities in the SEC cases against Wahi, Bittrex, and Binance, the facts against #Cardano look the weakest,” said Morgan.
The prominent Australian-based lawyer made this known in response to a tweet by famous Cardano enthusiast Chris O.

Chris also noted that the SEC failed to mention that the Cardano protocol is run by thousands of stake pool operators (SPO) worldwide. He added that Cardano’s decentralization would continue to shield the cryptocurrency from being classed as a security.
