SEC and Binance.US has reached a provisional arrangement to provide access to its assets

Some of the proposed changes include limiting the ability of Binance employees to access private keys and making the company’s financial records public.

The American cryptocurrency exchange will also be upcoming with detailed information on operational costs, including estimates, in the coming weeks.

This settlement was reached in direct response to a request filed by the SEC to have all of Binance.US’s assets frozen until the outcome of the litigation. Without a temporary restraining order, the regulatory body is concerned that funds may be transported overseas or that important data could be destroyed on purpose.

Legal counsel for Binance.US vigorously opposed the proposal, arguing that doing so would amount to inflicting an unnecessarily harsh “death penalty” on the firm.

U.S. district court judge Amy Berman Jackson suggested the parties settle on a proposed compromise rather than asking the court to write a restraining order at a hearing earlier in the week. The court emphasised that the two-week term of a temporary restraining order may be insufficient for a thorough hearing. This is especially true when considering the nearly 4,000-page total of the submitted exhibits.

Binance.US would create new cryptocurrency wallets that are unavailable to workers of other Binance firms as part of the proposed arrangement. Additionally, Binance.US agrees to the discovery timetable and to give the SEC new material. Customers in the United States may still make withdrawals at this time.

The SEC’s objections would be partly addressed under the proposed compromise, and the bigger litigation might continue.
