In other news, the US Securities and Exchange Commision (SEC) said to CNBC that it is working on getting some crypto lending companies properly registered if they operate more as investment firms.

"We have focused on this area because many of these firms...may well be investment companies taking hundreds of thousands or millions of customers' funds, pulling it together, and then re-lending it while offering pretty high returns. Sounds a little like an investment company, or a bank, you might say," SEC Chair Gary Gensler said.
