TurnKey Jet Inc. won’t face punishment for issuing coins that aren’t registered with the regulator as long as the company adheres to a number of stipulations, the SEC said Wednesday. Among the conditions: Those who buy the tokens won’t be granted an ownership stake in TurnKey and the company faces tough restrictions on using proceeds from coin sales to invest in its business.

The collective market surged and broke the $140 billion mark for the first time in a week. Many investors who suffered from the crypto crash rekindled their hopes and now believe that the bull market is coming back. However, that may not be the case.
For example, Zhao Dong, one of China’s most influential bitcoin billionaires and a famed over-the-counter (OTC) trader, holds the opposite view on this. Zhao repeated, “This is not a bull market” triple times in a Weibo post.
