Recently there has been much discussion over the proper regulation of cryptocurrencies and initial coin offerings (ICOs), as well as litigation asserting that ICOs must be registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Given the broad range of products and significant expansion of these markets, there has been confusion over the proper regulation of these instruments under various regulatory frameworks and by various regulatory bodies. Join us for a Teleforum discussion of these issues featuring Mark Rasmussen, a partner at Jones Day who was appointed to be the first ever receiver in an SEC enforcement action involving an ICO promoter, and Dave Hirsch, an enforcement attorney at the SEC who serves as the Cyber Liaison for the SEC Fort Worth Regional Office and is a member of the SEC DLT Working Group and the Dark Web Working Group.
