A Look at the Crypto Ecosystem: The Rising Risks and Emerging Markets


Simona Mola will discuss emerging markets and trends in enforcement activity in the cryptocurrency environment during this live webcast.

Cryptocurrency markets experienced a variety of setbacks in 2022 as regulators brought an increased number of enforcement actions. In 2023, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has ramped up crypto-related enforcement efforts, and also reopened rulemakings directed at platforms that connect buyers and sellers of alleged securities, including digital assets.

Dr. Mola will analyze the effects of this increased enforcement activity on the crypto ecosystem. Key topics will include:

  • Trends in SEC cryptocurrency enforcement and recent developments under Chairman Gensler
  • The SEC’s approach to initial coin offerings (ICOs)
  • Crypto platform enforcement and recent enforcement cases
  • SEC-proposed revisions to the definition of “exchange” under Exchange Act 3b-16 and implications for other crypto platforms, including DeFi (decentralized finance) systems
