In our 279th episode of The Cyberlaw Podcast, the Blockchain Group takes over the podcast. Host Alan Cohn is joined by Gary Goldsholle, Will Turner, and Evan Abrams to discuss:

  • The SEC has issued its second token-related no-action letter to Pocketful of Quarters, Inc., giving more guidance and opening a number of issues.
  • The SEC has brought a double-headed complaint against ICOBOX, an entity that both conducted an initial coin offering (ICO) and facilitated ICOs for others.
  • The US has brought the Financial Action Task Force along on its travel rule adventure.
  • The SEC and FINRA have custody guidance.
  • FinCEN has guidance on convertible virtual currencies.
  • The SEC has brought a complaint against FantasyCoin for what amounts to sheer, brazen fraud.
  • The SEC settlement in SimplyVital Health, with Steptoe as counsel, shows the SEC’s willingness to work with companies that voluntarily remediate errors.
