How We Help

Crypto and ICO Compliance Services

The world of crypto moves quickly and constantly. Recent SEC statements have been focused on two key points. First, ICO tokens were generally deemed to be securities. Therefore, they must conform to securities registration requirements and other investor protection provisions. Second, crypto brokers and exchanges were advised to register their platforms with FINRA and the SEC as national securities exchanges, alternative trading systems (ATS), and/or broker-dealers.
