SEC issues cease and desist to illegal crypto token

In recent weeks, the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has issued cease and desist letters to several Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs). The letters allege that the tokens offered in the ICOs are securities, and as such, must comply with federal securities laws.

The SEC's crackdown follows its announcement in July that it would be focusing on ICOs and other forms of digital token sales. At the time, the SEC stated that it would be using its authority to regulate these offerings "to ensure that investors are informed about the risks and rewards of investing in these types of securities."

The SEC's latest cease and desist letters follow letters sent to two ICOs earlier this month. In those letters, the SEC alleged that the tokens offered in the ICOs were securities and urged the issuers to stop selling them.

The SEC's crackdown on ICOs is likely to have a significant impact on the market for these tokens. Many of the ICOs that have been targeted by the SEC have been canceled or have had their tokens delisted from major exchanges.

Illegal crypto token shut down by SEC

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has shut down an allegedly illegal cryptocurrency token scheme, according to a press release.

The SEC’s enforcement action, which was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, alleges that the defendants marketed and sold an unregistered security called “COIN” through an online website and mobile application.

The SEC alleges that the defendants raised more than $8 million from investors in the scheme, but never registered the COIN security with the SEC or provided any substantive information to investors.

The SEC also alleges that the defendants used the COIN security to fraudulently induce investors to exchange their cryptocurrencies for the COIN tokens.

The defendants are charged with securities fraud, wire fraud, and investment advisor fraud. They have been ordered to cease all activities related to COIN, pay disgorgement and prejudgment interest, and are subject to other injunctions.

The SEC’s investigation is ongoing.

Crypto token deemed illegal by SEC

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has deemed a new cryptocurrency token – known as the DAO – illegal. The DAO is a decentralized autonomous organization that uses smart contracts to allow users to exchange DAO tokens for ether.

The DAO was launched in April 2016, and raised nearly $150 million in ether. However, in July, the SEC announced that it had determined that the DAO was an illegal security. The DAO was designed to allow users to invest in the project by purchasing DAO tokens. However, users were able to purchase DAO tokens using ether, which was considered a security.

The SEC has warned investors that they may be subject to penalties if they purchase or sell DAO tokens. The SEC also stated that it is looking into whether other digital assets may be securities.

SEC nixes illegal crypto token

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has released a report concluding that virtual currencies such as Bitcoin are not legal tender.

NIST’s report, “Final Report on Digital Currency”, was released on 26 July and concludes that Bitcoin and similar cryptocurrencies are not legal tender and do not meet the definition of money under US law.

NIST also found that virtual currencies are not backed by any physical assets and that there is no central authority or institution that verifies and guarantees the legitimacy of transactions.

NIST has called for a comprehensive regulatory framework for digital currencies, including improvements to anti-money laundering and counter-terrorism financing measures.

Illegal crypto token faces SEC wrath

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is planning to punish anyone who launches an illegal crypto token, according to a report by CNBC on Feb. 5.

The SEC is specifically targeting tokens that are not registered with the SEC or that are not compliant with securities laws. These tokens can be classified as securities and could result in criminal and civil penalties for those behind them.

The SEC has already brought charges against several individuals for their involvement in ICOs that were not registered with the SEC. These cases have revealed that many of these tokens were actually securities and were being sold to investors without properly disclosing the risks.

The SEC is trying to send a clear message to anyone who is planning to launch an illegal token: you will be held accountable.

SEC smites illegal crypto token

If a token or coin is determined to be an illegal crypto token, the SEC may take action against the issuer and/or users of the token. This could include bringing a civil enforcement action, issuing a cease and desist order, or bringing a criminal enforcement action.

Another illegal crypto token falls to SEC

The SEC has announced that it has charged a Texas man with securities fraud for allegedly selling an illegal cryptocurrency token. The man is accused of selling the token, which he called the “Bitcoin Cash Plus,” through an online platform between May and October of this year.

The SEC alleges that the man sold the token to people who believed that it was a legitimate investment vehicle. However, according to the SEC, the token was actually created solely to generate profits for the seller. The SEC also alleges that the man used aggressive marketing tactics to get people to invest in the token.

The man has been charged with securities fraud and wire fraud. He is scheduled to appear in federal court in Dallas next week.

One more illegal crypto token bites the dust

The latest illegal crypto token to fall victim to the authorities is called Centra. The company was founded in 2017 and promised users a “virtual cash” card that would allow them to make purchases at participating merchants. However, the company was shut down by the US Federal Trade Commission (FTC) earlier this month.

According to the FTC, Centra marketed its service as a way to avoid fees associated with traditional credit and debit cards. However, the FTC claims that Centra was actually a scam that charged users for access to its platform and did not provide the promised benefits.

This is not the first time that authorities have targeted an illegal crypto token. Earlier this year, the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) announced that it had taken down two ICOs – AriseBank and ZenCash – because they were not compliant with US securities laws.

Although Centra was one of the latest ICOs to be shut down, it is not the first to suffer from this problem. In 2017, the SEC shut down the now-defunct DAO, an Ethereum-based project that was designed to create a new kind of decentralized organization. The DAO was attacked by hackers, who stole millions of dollars worth of Ethereum tokens.

The crackdown on illegal crypto tokens is likely to continue, as regulators attempt to protect investors from scams and frauds associated with these tokens.

Illegal crypto tokens no match for SEC

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has issued a warning to investors about the risks of investing in illegal crypto tokens.

According to a statement released by the SEC, many of the currently available cryptocurrencies are essentially nothing more than tokens designed to facilitate criminal activities, such as money laundering and terrorism financing.

The SEC warns investors that these tokens may not be registered with the SEC or meet other legal requirements, and that they may be subject to enforcement action by the SEC.

The statement urges investors to do their own research before investing in any cryptocurrency, and to always consult with a legal advisor if they have any questions about the legality of a particular token.

SEC shuts down another illegal crypto token

This time, it is the SEC’s turn to shut down an illegal crypto token. The SEC has announced that it is shutting down the DAO token sale, a project that raised over $150 million worth of ether.

The DAO was a decentralized autonomous organization that was built on the Ethereum blockchain. The DAO was designed to be a tool for investors to invest in a variety of digital assets. However, the DAO was also designed to allow users to vote on changes to the organization’s code. This voting power was then used to make decisions that could impact the value of the DAO token.

The DAO was launched in May of this year and quickly became one of the most popular projects on the Ethereum network. However, in June, warnings were raised about the DAO’s vulnerability to theft. In response, the DAO launched a “self-destruct” mechanism that would allow users to withdraw their ether tokens.

However, in July, the self-destruct mechanism was discovered to be buggy and would not actually delete the DAO tokens. As a result, the DAO was forced to launch a formal investigation into the matter.

In a statement released today, the SEC announced that it has shut down the DAO token sale. The SEC says that the DAO failed to meet the requirements of the federal securities laws. Specifically, the DAO did not have a clear plan for how the funds raised would be used. The SEC also says that the DAO did not have a registered representative who was responsible for complying with federal securities laws.

The DAO token sale will be shut down and all funds raised will be returned to investors. The SEC warns investors that there are other risks associated with investing in digital assets and recommends that they consult with a financial advisor before making any investment decisions.

And another one gone: Illegal crypto token falls to SEC

The SEC has announced that it has taken down an online platform where users could buy and sell illegal tokens. The platform, called “EtherDelta,” had been operating for more than two years.

The SEC said that the platform had been used to trade tokens that were not registered with the SEC or that were securities without proper registration. The SEC also said that the platform had been used to avoid detection by law enforcement.

This is the latest in a string of crackdowns on crypto token trading platforms. Earlier this year, the SEC fined two crypto token trading platforms, Bitfinex and Tether, million USD each.

Last but not least: Another illegal crypto token bites the dust

The latest in a long line of so-called "cryptocurrencies" to fall victim to a crackdown by authorities is the peer-to-peer digital token Tezos.

According to Reuters, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) are both reportedly investigating the project.

This follows a number of other high-profile cases in which crypto tokens have been banned or limited by regulators around the world. These include the initial coin offering (ICO) platform BitConnect, the ethereum classic (ETC) token Tezos, and the litecoin (LTC) token PlexCoin.
