Reports are doing the rounds that the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has issued a subpoena to crypto influencers that were promoting Hex, PulseChain, and PulseX. While Hex was launched in December 2019, PulseChain (PLS) is yet to be launched. Moreover, the release date for PulseChain remains to be unknown.

Swedish researcher Eric Wall was among the first on social media to share the SEC letter which was addressed to influencers.

A part of the letter read, “We believe that you may possess documents and data that are relevant to an ongoing investigation being conducted by the staff of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission”.

“GUYS. IT’S HAPPENING. Hexicans influencers are getting subpoenad by the SEC over HEX, PulseChain, and PulseX. The HEX information channels are filled with information about how to shred your digital evidence,” tweeted Eric Wall.

However, the Hex community called the letter “fake news” on social media. On the other hand, Eric Wall retaliated saying, “Hexicans: time to post the unblurred versions here. If they’re fake—no harm right?”

Moreover, it is not confirmed if the letter is real or fake. The SEC has not announced on its website that they have issued a subpoena to the influencers.
