In addition, “we made sure that the United States users can withdraw their funds from the exchange while we work to solve the supposed underlying misconduct and hold the Binance entities and CZ liable for their supposed violations of securities law”.

The SEC spokesman added that “although we accept that SEC’s order for an emergency restraining order was unwarranted, we are satisfied that the dispute over the request has been resolved mutually in agreeable terms.
