Crypto Showdown: SEC’s Security Stamp on Filecoin Challenged by Grayscale
The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has made a bold move, classifying Filecoin (FIL) as a security under federal laws. But guess what? Grayscale Investments, the digital asset management giant, isn’t backing down.

Get ready for a thrilling clash as Grayscale fights to prove that Filecoin isn’t just a security. Will they succeed, or will the SEC have the final say? Stay tuned as this crypto battle unfolds!
