Enigma settles with SEC over $45 million ICO

Today the SEC announced a settlement with token issuer Enigma MPC over its $45 million ICO. As part of the settlement, Enigma has agreed to return funds to harmed investors via a claims process and register the tokens as securities. Enigma will also be required to file periodic reports with the SEC and pay a $500,000 fine.

Why it matters: - The settlement is the latest of a series of enforcement announcements regarding ICO projects.

The team is currently exploring legally compliant ways for a token swap between the ERC-20 ENG token and the mainnet SCRT coin. For the time being Enigma cannot proceed down this avenue.
