The company behind the most popular collection of non-fungible tokens has reportedly appeared in the crosshairs of the SEC
Yuga Labs Inc., the creator of the Bored Ape Yacht Club collection of non-fungible tokens, is under an investigation by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, Bloomberg reports.
The aim of the probe is to determine whether or not the company violates federal securities laws with some of its offerings.
