Active Investigation: Token Sales

Law Offices of Wites & Kapetan and Silver Miller Investigate Cryptocurrency Tokens and Initial Coin Offerings

The United States Securities and Exchange Commission announced on July 25, 2017 that “Tokens” sold to investors in “Initial Coin Offerings” may be a security subject to federal security laws.  If you purchased a Token or participated in an Initial Coin Offering, you may have a claim for the return of your investment and other damages if the sale was not properly registered and conducted in accordance with federal securities laws.

It is also possible that the virtual Tokens or Initial Coin Offerings were misrepresented on the website of such entities and/or the electronic documents you received in connection with your investment.  In other words, the investment may have been misrepresented because the sale did not comply with federal securities laws, or the virtual entity that sold you the Tokens through the Initial Coin Offerings may not have and may never launch the tokens or coins it claims to have sold you. 

Recent Initial Coin Offerings have raised tens, and in some cases, hundreds of millions of dollars, such as Tezos ($231,319,985), The DAO ($168,000,000), Bancor ($153,000,000) and Status ($90,000,000). 

A complete list of ICOS, as reported by www.coinschedule.com, is pasted below.

If you purchased Tokens or cryptocurrency through an Initial Coin Offering and are concerned that you purchased an unregistered security and/or are the victim of a fraud, the lawyers at Wites & Kapetan and Silver Miller may be able to help you recover some or all of your money.  For more information, email info@wklawyers.com or DSilver@SilverMillerLaw.com.

Wites & Kapetan, P.A. and Silver Miller are experienced in cryptocurrency litigation.  They have worked together in the successful class action against Cryptsy, and are currently litigating class actions against Coinbase and Kraken.

If you purchased Tokens or cryptocurrency through an Initial Coin Offering and are concerned that you purchased an unregistered security and/or are the victim of a fraud, the lawyers at Wites & Kapetan and Silver Miller may be able to help you recover some or all of your money.  For more information, email info@wklawyers.com or DSilver@SilverMillerLaw.com.

What is a class action?

A class action is a lawsuit brought by one person that has a claim that is the same or similar to a larger group of people.  The person bringing the lawsuit is commonly referred to as the "Class Representative” or the "Named Plaintiff".  The larger group of people is called the "Class"

How many people are necessary to begin a class action?

Only one. A class action may be initiated by only one person, who serves as the Class Representative and files the class action lawsuit on behalf of the Class. The Class in some class actions may include tens of thousands, or even hundreds of thousands of persons. Class actions may also involve much smaller groups, where the Class has only a few hundred people, and even as few as 40 or so.  In either event, only one person is required to come forward to begin the class action lawsuit by serving as the Class Representative and filing the class action complaint with their lawyer.

What types of cases may be class actions?

The law of class actions, and the rules of civil procedure that govern class actions, applies to virtually all cases, provided that such case satisfies the requirements to be a class action. For example, class actions may involve defective products; fraud in the sale of securities (i.e., stock); antitrust violations; overcharging for products and services such as insurance or fees in real estate transactions; charging a fee when no service is provided; unfair and deceptive trade practices; and pharmaceuticals.

Do I have to pay a lawyer to start a class action?

No. Class action lawyers work on a contingency fee basis, which means that you, as the Class Representative, are not obligated to pay your lawyer’s attorney’s fees or costs.  If the case is successful, the lawyers will ask the Court to award them, from the recovery obtained for the Class, attorney’s fees and the reimbursement of their costs.  

How long does a class action take?

Class action lawsuits are complex and difficult to litigate. While some class actions may be resolved in a year or two, it is not uncommon for class actions to remain in court for many years.

Does Wites & Kapetan only handle class actions?

Marc A. Wites has worked on class action litigation for the past 20 years, and has done so at Wites & Kapetan since 2001. Marc and the firm also represent individuals with significant injuries in cases other than class actions.
