Earlier this year, the Chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) made it clear that the SEC’s approach to compliance with securities laws with respect to initial coin offerings and other cryptocurrency offerings (collectively ICOs) will be to apply the law broadly and take quick action against those who fail to properly comply. With scores of subpoenas issued and actions already filed this year by the SEC, it is clear that strict compliance with securities laws is essential. This webinar will review the securities laws applicable to ICOs, covering everything from exempt private offerings to registered public offerings, and additionally, discuss actions the SEC and plaintiffs' attorneys are taking against ICO issuers. The panel will also discuss the tax implications of different types of “coins” a company may issue.
