About This Course
With the fall of FTX and the dream of cryptocurrency, the intersection between it and federal and security commodities becomes both fascinating and highly relevant. And as per the title of this session, has taken on Biblical proportions (see Samuel 2, 1:19).
This riveting CLE course will present the allegations by the U.S. Department of Justice, the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Commodities Future Trading Commission against Samuel Bankman-Fried, former CEO of FTX, and will explain how those allegations are used as a basis for discussing some of the legal implications of crypto.
Without glorifying crypto, the course will offer a current overview of the realities of crypto as well as how it is subject to regulation under the federal securities and commodity laws as presently written.
