Investors Who Got Defrauded

Investors Who Got Defrauded

 

A nascent technology with seemingly limitless applications, cryptocurrency and the underlying block chain technology exploded onto the scene in 2017. Although already making waves in certain circles, widespread craving for cryptocurrency largely correlated with Bitcoin’s historic 2017 rally. With the 2017 cryptocurrency market generating unprecedented windfalls for early adopters, Main Street was primed and ready to enter the burgeoning market of Initial Coin Offerings.

 

If you believe that you may have invested in an ICO that was part of a fraudulent scheme or if you otherwise suffered from the action of a bad actor in the cryptocurrency space, please call us for a free consultation.

Eager to find the next Bitcoin or Ethereum, investors drove the ICO market from just $10 million during the first quarter of 2017 to nearly $7 billion dollars during the first quarter of 2018. While this period saw a number of revolutionary projects that provided exceptional returns to investors, the early ICO landscape was also saturated with bad actors looking to exploit unsuspecting investors through a myriad of fraudulent schemes.

 

While cryptocurrency and blockchain based companies have faced an abundance of regulatory actions in recent years, individuals may still have a private right of action to pursue remuneration for any harm suffered as a result of investing in cryptocurrency. Generally, an individual that invested in a fraudulent cryptocurrency project or participated in an unregistered ICO may be allowed to file a lawsuit within five years of the alleged misconduct or within two years of discovering the unauthorized activity.

 

Call us today to discuss how we can help you recover from the losses incurred from your involvement in ICOs or your investment in a cryptocurrency or blockchain company.
