Coinbase share price dropped since the beginning of the week - 9% on Monday and 12% on Tuesday over rising concerns around the cryptocurrency sector after the US Securities and Exchange Commission filed a lawsuit against Binance - the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange. 

Crypto investors were quick to sell off most cryptocurrency related stocks after the US SEC demanded a US court to freeze Binance's US assets, while also filing a lawsuit against Binance CEO for allegedly operating a "web of deception."

The SEC alleged that Binance artificially inflated its trading volumes, diverted customer funds, failed to restrict U.S. customers from its platform and misled investors about its surveillance controls. 

The US SEC also sued Coinbase for violating US securities laws after filing a case on Binance.

Cathie Wood’s ARK Invest bought nearly 400,000 shares of Coinbase after its fall.
