US SEC hits out at "ICO Superstore" and crypto hedge fund

In the first case, the SEC announced that self-described "ICO superstore" TokenLot and its owners, Lenny Kugel and Eli L. Lewitt, will settle charges that "they acted as unregistered broker-dealers".

In its order, the regulator said TokenLot's website was promoted as "a way to purchase digital tokens during initial coin offerings and also to engage in secondary trading".
