Whistleblowers who learn of either fraud or bribery connected to cryptocurrencies may be eligible for a reward under the SEC’s program. Likewise, people who are aware of SEC-regulated companies using a cryptocurrency, such as Bitcoin, to pay bribes or launder money may be eligible for a reward under the Dodd-Frank program. Regardless of how complicated a transaction is, there is always a human element to it. Human intelligence is needed to unmask cryptocurrency schemes, and whistleblowers who are willing to assist the SEC may be eligible for a large financial reward.
People who want to pay bribes to foreign officials or launder large sums of money will like the fact that cryptocurrency transactions are very difficult to track due to their anonymity and complexity. Criminals who use cryptocurrencies to violate the FCPA and other U.S. laws are not easy for U.S. regulators to identify and stop. That is why information from cryptocurrency whistleblowers is so important because they can provide valuable intelligence revealing how the scheme works.
Initial coin offerings or initial currency offerings (ICOs) also can be the subject of fraud, bribery, and corruption. Anyone with knowledge of wrongdoing associated with a cryptocurrency currency or an ICO may have reward eligible information and should feel free to contact me for a free, confidential consultation.
