According to a page called Top Alleged SEC Securities Coins by Market Cap, the largest such assets have a combined capitalization of $91.2 billion. Over the past day, the figure has grown by 8.3%.

Among the top tokens tracked by the service are BNB ($37.2 billion), Cardano ($10.2 billion), Solana ($9.3 billion) and TRON ($6.9 billion).

In a comment to Cointelegraph, a CoinGecko spokesperson said that the index launched in the first week of August by compiling a selection of the most notable altcoins that the SEC considered securities.

During the latest court hearings on lawsuits against Coinbase and Binance, the regulator increased its list of such assets to 68 positions. The service included 48 tokens in the category at the time of writing.

Altcoins like the FTT of the collapsed FTX exchange or the depreciated EMAX of the EthereumMax project close the rating, the capitalization of which is unknown.

Recall that in April, SEC Chairman Gary Gensler said that according to the law, all cryptocurrencies are securities. He previously made an exception for bitcoin.
