Investor Alert: Kaplan Fox Investigates Potential Securities Law Violations by BAM Trading Services Inc. dba Binance US

NEW YORK, June 17, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Kaplan Fox & Kilsheimer LLP (www.kaplanfox.com) is investigating claims on behalf of investors who purchased or sold Terra USD or LUNA, two crypto-assets, from BAM Trading Services Inc. that operates under the trade name Binance U.S. (the “Company” or “Binance U.S.”).

A lawsuit was filed in federal court in San Francisco against Binance U.S. alleging that the Company failed to register under federal or state law as a securities exchange or a registered broker-dealer and failed to disclose that Terra USD, also referred to as UST, and LUNA are securities.

According to the complaint, “Binance U.S.’s failure to comply with the securities law, and its false advertisements of Terra USD, have led to disastrous consequences for Binance U.S.’s customers: in May 2022, in the span of just a few days, UST lost essentially all its value – a loss of approximately $18 billion.” Contrary to Binance U.S.’s advertisements, the complaint alleges that UST was not “safe,” “stable,” or fiat-backed.”

Reportedly, the SEC is investigating whether the marketing of Terra USD before it crashed last month violated federal investor-protection regulations.

If you purchased or sold Terra USD or LUNA from Binance U.S. or have significant losses in other cryptocurrencies and would like to discuss our investigation, please contact us by emailing [email protected] or by calling (646) 315-9003.
