Theme:SEC Enforcement Activity on Cryptocurrencies in the time of Covid-19


In this presentation, Simona Mola will offer a comprehensive overview of the SEC enforcement activity in the last 7 years with particular focus on the last months of the Covid-19 pandemic. In particular, the presentation will cover the enforcement activity related to initial coin offerings (ICOs) and discuss the alternative mechanics to issue an ICO in compliance with securities laws. Finally, while a lot of the media attention is devoted to the SEC’s approach toward ICOs, the presentation will touch on other challenging issues, such as broker-dealer custody issues, Bitcoin ETFs, and stablecoins.
