According to the report by Bloomberg on Wednesday, The United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is investigating crypto companies that pay interest on virtual token deposits. The report revealed by an anonymous source stating that the regulator’s investigation is focused on checking if the crypto lending companies should register their offerings as securities.

Bloomberg reported that the agency is thinking about whether or not those companies need to record their services as securities with the SEC. However, the organisation isn’t accusing any of the companies of wrongdoing at this time. These agencies will pay more fees on those properties than leading banks do on financial savings debts by lending their tokens to different investors.
