Winklevoss hits back against ‘super lame… manufactured parking ticket’

Tyler Winklevoss, the co-founder of cryptocurrency exchange Gemini, has hit out at the regulator charging the exchange over issuing unregistered securities, calling the allegations “super lame” and a “manufactured parking ticket.”

In a series of tweets on Jan. 12, Winklevoss shared his disappointment over the earlier charges from the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) regarding Gemini’s “Earn” program claiming the regulator was “optimizing for political points.”

He called the SEC’s action “totally counterproductive” and said Gemini had been discussing the Earn program with the regulator “for more than 17 months.”

“They never raised the prospect of any enforcement action until AFTER Genesis paused withdrawals on November 16th,” Winklevoss added.

He stated Gemini would defend itself against the unregistered security charges and would “make sure this doesn’t distract us from the important recovery work we are doing.”
