Coinbase Global Inc. said it’s being probed by the US Securities and Exchange Commission over its staking programs, which allow users to earn rewards for holding certain cryptocurrencies.

The requests relate to Coinbase’s staking programs, asset-listing process, classification of assets and stablecoin products, the company said.
