John Deaton Files Amicus brief in Support of Coinbase’s Appeal Against SEC

John Deaton Files Amicus brief in Support of Coinbase’s Appeal Against SEC



John Deaton is a Republican candidate for the Senate who has submitted an amicus brief to show his support for Coinbase during the current legal dispute that the company faces with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Deaton argues in this amicus brief that a court of higher jurisdiction should consider a legal question pertaining to cryptocurrency regulation. His involvement in this case not only serves as proof of his commitment to the bitcoin community but also helps to strengthen his position as a Senate candidate who supports cryptocurrency.



Coinbase has filed an interlocutory request in support of its appeal. The company wants a higher court to decide whether digital assets traded on secondary markets are securities and should be regulated by the Securities and Exchange Commission. Deaton's brief, an amicus curiae, supports Coinbase's position by opposing the SEC’s broad application of the Howey Test, which determines whether or not a transaction is an investment contract. This test has been used to classify all token transactions as securities. This test is used in order to determine what constitutes a contract of investment. He argues that a comprehensive approach is not possible due to the complexity and variety of digital assets, and the transactions between them on various blockchain platforms.



John Deaton's involvement in this case reinforces his image of a crypto-friendly candidate for the upcoming Senate campaign. Deaton’s dedication to the crypto community is evident in his commitment to it. His support of Ripple in their legal battle against the SEC has helped him establish his reputation, and demonstrated his commitment to the digital assets industry. Deaton will also be delivering a speech during the Consensus conference in which he will demonstrate his active involvement in discussions about crypto-regulatory matters. It is likely that Deaton's continued involvement in crypto-regulatory issues will increase his industry influence, regardless of the outcome of the election.
