Event Description:
"The Digital Market: Bitcoin and Other Virtual Currency"
Joseph Rotunda, Director of Enforcement
Texas State Securities Board

The market for virtual currencies sharply increased late last year as Bitcoin soared in value to nearly $20,000 per token.  Although legitimate businesses are now exploring and implementing exciting new technologies tied to virtual currencies, crooks, criminals and other bad actors attempted to capitalize on the hype surrounding Bitcoin and other virtual coins to defraud the public.  Amid growing concerns these persons were threatening Texans, the Enforcement Division of the Texas State Securities Board conducted a four-week targeted sweep of promoters touting suspect investments tied to Bitcoin and virtual currencies.  Attorneys and investigators opened 32 investigations over the course of four weeks, have since opened more than a total of 60 investigations of suspect investments tied to Bitcoin and other virtual currencies and have brought more than ten law enforcement actions to protect retirees, senior citizens and other Texans.  Although the way, the regulators learned their concerns were real: the market for investments in Bitcoin and other digital currencies is saturated with widespread fraud, and Texans face the real risk of immediate and irreparable financial harm.
