SEC, EtherDelta founder settle charges over operating unregistered exchange
(Reuters) – The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) said on Thursday it settled charges against Zachary Coburn, the founder of cryptocurrency token trading platform EtherDelta, over operating an unregistered securities exchange.
EtherDelta users executed more than 3.6 million orders for ERC20 tokens over a period of 18 months, including tokens that are securities under the Federal Securities Laws, which required the platform to be registered as a national securities exchange, the SEC said.
EtherDelta is an online platform for secondary market trading of ERC20 tokens, a type of blockchain-based token commonly issued in initial coin offerings (ICOs), the SEC said in a statement. (https://
