Braden Perry gives his exterpise in SEC vs. Telegram article

Kennyhertz Perry Attorne, Braden Perry was recently featured in an article on Finance Magnates website discussing, the SEC and Telegram lawsuit alongside author David Gerard.

Braden Perry explained to Finance Magnates that “much like Kik, Telegram/Ton must essentially argue that this is a case of ‘enforcement by regulation.’ And they aren’t wrong. The Howey test is notoriously vague and many times based on a case-by-case basis. While I generally do not advocate for additional regulations, more concrete SEC guidance is necessary for ICO issuance.”

“The last thing any industry wants is regulation by enforcement, in which agencies decide that some practices should have been illegal, and instead of declaring it illegal from now on through rulemaking, go back and prosecute the people who were doing it before,” Perry continued.”
