The case, filed by Solana investor Mark Young, states that Solana Labs and others sold SOL as securities without a securities statement. They have also claimed that the defendants promoted these alleged unregistered securities. Young said he bought SOL in September last year. They said, “The buyers of SOL Securities had invested in an enterprise Solana. These individuals expect to profit from the efforts of promoters Solana Labs and Solana Foundation to build a blockchain network that competes with Bitcoin and Ethereum.”
One of the allegations against Solana Labs in this case is that the defendants benefit from SOL being centralized crypto. Young claims that the defendants profited from losses from retail investors. Documents submitted to the court show that the defendants spent large sums of money to promote SOL in the US. This had led to a rise in the price of SOL.
