On February 13 of this year, the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is about to file a lawsuit against Paxos Trust Company as an issuer of BUSD, alleging that the coin is an unregistered security.

Following that, US-based blockchain infrastructure platform Paxos Trust Company announced it would stop issuing new Binance stablecoins from February 21. At the time, Changpeng Zhao (CZ), CEO of Binance, said BUSD holders shouldn’t worry as Paxos will manage the conversion and fully cover the reserves in their bank.
