Coinbase/COIN is involved in a controversy with the SEC over its interest bearing Coinbase Lend program. Coinbase wants to lend customer balances in its stablecoin USD Coin (privately backed cryptos with $1 value) and pay back some interest to the holders. Coinbase claims that it has been briefing the SEC and that others have similar programs. The SEC says that it is reviewing the issue and doesn't want more such new programs started and has threatened to sue Coinbase if it goes ahead. Unclear if a public spat on this is helpful for the crypto industry. FWIW, I started a small position in COIN a while ago.
