According to a Bloomberg report, the US-based SEC, which has taken a tough stance on cryptocurrency projects under Chairman Gary Gensler, is investigating NFT creators and marketplaces for regulatory violations.
As per the report, the probe is looking into whether NFTs “are being used to raise money like traditional securities.” The SEC has reportedly sent subpoenas related to the investigation and is specifically interested in information about fractional NFTs that allow multiple people to own (and trade) a share of an asset.
