SEC accuses those behind altcoin project for unregistered ICO

Crowd Machine’s event that took place between January and April 2018 He is allegedly involved in an institutional ICO called Crowd Machine Compute Tokens (CMCT). The SEC states that Sproule has told them that the proceeds from the ICO will go towards developing new technology for Metavine, enabling the company to run its application development software on a decentralized network. However, the SEC claimed that Sproule and Crowd Machine transferred $5.8 million to South African gold mining entities without notifying investors.

Additionally, the SEC stated that the CMCT sale constitutes an unregistered security offering, and that Sproule and company are knowingly selling tokens without determining whether the investors are publicly known. The SEC filed a complaint with the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, accusing Sproule and Crowd Machine of violating the registration and anti-fraud provisions of the federal securities law. The defendants did not deny or admit the charges, but accepted decisions that prevented them from taking or participating in future action in this area. It was also requested that CMCT tokens be delisted from exchanges. CMCT appears to be only listed on the HitBTC exchange at the moment. The altcoin’s price seems to have dropped 20 percent in the last 24 hours.
