ICO’s Declared Securities: Bearish Bitcoin?

ICO’s have been indirectly declared as securities by a New York Federal Judge. This was covered in a district court, meaning this isn’t the federal view point. Nonetheless, it is the first step in stating that U.S Securities law cover ICO Token sales.

This can be seen on a Global sphere as to lead further class action suits against ICOs, with more individuals bringing suits.

Those in the U.K will remember PPI lawsuits with no win, no fee. Meaning that if you were involved in any accident, lawyers will take on your case, if they don’t win, they don’t charge you. This will utiltimately bring more negative sentiment towards Cryptocurrencies. With anyone entering into a ICO bringing a suit against them within the United States.

The judge presiding over the case stating that:

“Zaslavskiy’s contrary characterizations are plainly insufficient to by pass regulatory and criminal enforcement of the securities laws. Because the indictment is sufficient under the Constitution and the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure, and because the law under which Zaslavskiy is charged is not unconstitutionally vague as applied, Zaslavskiy’s motion is denied. The case will proceed to trial.”
