Bitcoin is up about 5% in late-afternoon market trading, hours after the SEC announced a lawsuit against U.S. crypto exchange Coinbase.

It’s a notable market shift and largely retraces the value lost when the SEC filed a lawsuit against Binance and its American arm, BinanceUS.

Bitcoin is trading at around $27,015 as of press time, according to TradingView data.
