Heart, 43, began marketing Hex in 2018, according to the SEC complaint. He claimed it was the first high-yield “blockchain certificate of deposit” and said the tokens were “built to be the highest appreciating asset that has ever existed in the history of man.”

The complaint also says he touted Hex, his PulseX asset trading platform and PulseChain asset network as pathways to “grandiose wealth” — but the SEC believes the crypto influencer was tricking investors in order to line his own pockets.
