阿拉巴马州证券委员会 (ASC), 美国. state’s securities regulator, has joined its counterparts in Texas and New Jersey in hitting out at initial coin offerings (感染控制主任) that are soliciting local residents.

According to a cease-and-desist order entered on May 2 and revealed yesterday, the agency has ordered purported cryptocurrency mining firm Extrabit to cease its token sale offering in the state.

The ASC alleged the firm has been illegally soliciting Alabama investors with what it considers an unregistered securities offering after it advertised its token sale on the website of WSFA, an NBC-affiliated TV station licensed in the state capital, Montgomery.

While currently the online ad appears to have been taken down, the agency said in the order that the firm originally claimed that investors in the pre-ICO phase could purchase Extrabit’s tokenEXBat half price.

To participate in the pre-sale, the user must invest $20,000 and after the purchase, the tokens will be sent to MyEtherWallet within 48 小时,” the agency quoted the original ad as saying.

进一步, Extrabit’s white paper claims that, since the firm generates its profits mainly from mining bitcoin, zcash and monero, it promises a 185 percent return on investment every quarter for investors who maintain a positive balance in their EXB wallet.

As well as offering unregistered securities, the ASC said the project madematerially misleadingstatements to defraud or deceive investors.

And Extrabit seems not to be the only token project that is targeting residents in Alabama. A Google search fortoken saleon the WSFA website currently comes up with over 200 press release-style ads from various ICO projects.

此外, the ASC has also tackled two other token sale projects, named LEV and Platinum, with cease-and-desist orders entered on 可能 2可能 18, respectively.

Like with Extrabit, the agency accused the two projects of selling unregistered securities in Alabama while making unrealistic promises to potential investors over the likely returns on investment.

The ASC actions also follow its counterparts in other U.S. states such as Texas新泽西州 that have recently stepped up their efforts in scrutinizing and red-lighting cryptocurrency projects that are soliciting investments locally.
