American CryptoFed registration at risk as SEC alleges filing anomalies

CoinTelegraph

American CryptoFed DAO, the first decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) to get legal recognition in the United States, is at risk of losing its registration after the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) dug up anomalies in the Form S-1 registration statement dated Sept. 17, 2021.

The Wyoming Secretary of State’s office recognized American CryptoFed as a legal entity in July 2021, at a time when the organization’s CEO, Marian Orr, believed that “Wyoming is arguably the top blockchain jurisdiction in the world.”

However, on Nov. 18, 2022, the SEC instituted administrative proceedings against the DAO to determine the issuance of a stop order. A stop order from the SEC would retract American CryptoFed’s registration and bar sales of in-house tokens, Ducat and Locke.

According to the SEC’s Division Of Enforcement, the Form S-1 registration statement filed by American CryptoFed lacks vital information, such as audited financial statements and details about its business and management. The SEC further believed that the American CryptoFed filing contains “misleading statements and omissions” while being inconsistent in describing the tokens as securities.

In this regard, David Hirsch, Chief of the Enforcement Division’s Crypto Assets and Cyber Unit stated that:

“American CryptoFed not only failed to comply with the disclosure requirements of the federal securities laws, but it also claimed that the securities transactions they seek to register are not in fact securities transactions at all.”

Hirsch clarified that issuers must provide the required disclosure information to the SEC. However, the SEC claimed non-cooperation from American CryptoFed during its examination of its registration statement.

Based on the information made available to the public, Hirsch shared SEC intent regarding the DAO:

“The Enforcement Division is seeking to stop American CryptoFed’s registration to protect investors against misleading information.”

Cointelegraph found that the official Telegram channel for the DAO has been disabled.

However, the deletion of the Telegram account was not yet linked to the SEC’s investigation at the time of writing. American CryptoFed has not yet responded to Cointelegraph’s request for comment.
