- The SEC has denied rumors about the departure of its head
- Recently, the number of such messages has increased.
The other day, rumors began to circulate in the media that the head of the SEC, Gary Gensler, had resigned. This article first appeared on the little-known website thecryptoalert.com. It states that the reason for the dismissal was allegedly an internal investigation in the department. Journalists at the same time referred to sources within the SEC.
Some cryptocurrency publications spread this rumor. Therefore, the SEC PR department had to issue an official denial.
Investigation by journalists showed that the article about Gensler’s resignation was most likely generated by AI. Thus, the ZeroGPT AI detector assigned 96.8% to the text, which indicates a high degree of generation. In addition, the site with the article was created a few days ago.
This is not the first time that Gensler’s career problems have been rumored. On April 20, similar articles appeared on dubious sites.
However, the throne under the head of the SEC is really tottering. On June 12, US lawmakers registered a document in the House of Representatives under the program name “SEC Stabilization Act”. In it, politicians called for a reform in the department and dismissed Gensler from his post. American congressmen called him “the tyrannical chairman.”
The Blockchain Association said last week that Gensler should be “isolated from working on crypto laws.”
