  • DJ Khaled被美國證券交易委員會控告加密貨幣詐欺案

    ◎饒舌歌手兼製作人DJ Khaled和拳擊手Floyd Mayweather各自被美國證券交易委員會提出控告,因為他們沒有告知投資者他們有獲得加密貨幣初創公司Centra的報酬請他們為該公司的首次代幣​​發行(ICO)推銷。這是對ICO的促銷提出控告的首例案件,ICO是一種吸引投資者投入數十億資金的新方法,通常是針對未經審查的加密貨幣。

    ◎Khaled之前並未透露Centra Tech為促銷其加密貨幣的發行而支付給他5萬美元的款項;Floyd Mayweather則被Centra Tech支付了10萬美元。根據美國證券交易委員會的說法,Khaled在他的社群媒體上稱Centra是一個「將打破格局改變形勢的全新產品」而沒有透露他是有被付費的代言人。Floyd Mayweather也沒有透露他收了20萬美元去推銷另外兩家ICO。

    ◎根據CNBC的報導,Floyd Mayweather將必須繳回30萬美元的非法收益、30萬美元的罰款和14,775美元的利息。Khaled將必須繳回50,000美元的非法收益、10萬美元的罰款和2,725美元的利息。Floyd Mayweather還同意三年內不推銷證券商品並配合調查,而Khaled同意接受兩年內不推銷證券商品的禁令。

    Mayweather also did not disclose $200,000 he was paid to promote two other ICOs.

    Their punishment according to CNBC:

    "Mayweather will pay $300,000 in disgorgement, a $300,000 penalty and $14,775 in interest. Khaled will pay $50,000 in disgorgement, a $100,000 penalty and $2,725 in interest. Mayweather also agreed not to promote securities for three years and to cooperate with the investigation and Khaled agreed to a two year ban."
