Unikrn Undisturbed by SEC Ruling in ICO Case
Earlier this year, the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) reached a decision in the case against Unikrn Inc., accusing the operator of launching an unauthorized initial coin offering (ICO) of digital asset securities.
Unirkn has agreed to admit fault, paying a $6.1 million fine as part of the settlement with the regulator. SEC said that Unikrn successfully raised $31 million for its UnikoinGold (UKG) during June and October 2017.
At the time, Unikrn told investors that the ICO was a pre-cursor to facilitating and beefing up demand for the token. From SEC’s standpoint, though, Unikrn sold tokens as investment contracts, which are a type of security, but the company has failed to register those tokens as securities.
Toughening Up Stance against Fraud
Since this incident, Unikrn has been on the straight and narrow, revving up its efforts to uphold industry standards. Earlier in November, the company teamed up with SEON, a company specializing in fraud prevention.
As per the partnership, the company will assist Unikrn to identify users who may be using multiple accounts to commit fraud including but not limited to bonus abuse.
