Kardashian has already agreed to settle the case, with a fine of $1,26 million, and to assist the SEC in its ongoing investigation.

The agency clarified that Kardashian should have disclosed that she received a $250.000 payment to post a post featuring EthereumMax's EMAX tokens on her Instagram account.

Kardashian's settlement with the SEC includes a $260.000 payment representing that principal, plus interest, as well as a $1 million penalty.

SEC Chairman Gary Gensler posted a separate message on Twitter about the settlement, stating that celebrities' posts should not be taken as advice by their audience.

Kardashian, on the other hand, released the following statement about the charges and the settlement through her rep:

Ms. Kardashian is pleased to report that she has resolved the matter with the SEC. Kardashian has fully cooperated with the SEC from the beginning and remains willing to do everything she can to assist the SEC in this matter. She wants to put this issue behind her and avoid a prolonged argument. The deal it reached with the SEC allows it to do so in a way that allows it to move forward with its many different business obligations. The Best Technology Site in Greece
