SEC盯上区块链概念股炒作

近日,美国证券交易委员会(SEC)在沃思堡办公室的社交媒体团队将目光锁定在了用区块链概念提升股价的上市公司身上。

据报道称,过去的几个月里已经出现了多家利用区块链概念提升股价的公司,其中包括一家虚拟现实平台以及一家长岛冰茶经销商,这些公司利用区块链的概念,从投资者手中牟取了暴利。

其他利用加密货币或区块链的公司还包括Riot Blockchain和LongFin,这些公司在购买了一家区块链小额贷款公司的股份之后股价也暴涨近2600% 。

这些令人眩晕的股价哄抬手法已引起了广泛批评,目前至少有一家甚至两家上市公司的股票因此而被冻结。

虽然这些公司已宣布将努力参与区块链研究,至少参与加密货币挖矿。但正如过去的一些文件显示,美国金融业监管局(FINRA)等监管机构仍然警示投资者要注意此类投机行为,比如告诫投资者需提防任何吹嘘与区块链技术相关联的上市交易股票。此外,在上月发布的一份声明中FINRA提到,相关企业或发起人很容易就能将自己与区块链产品、服务以及其他加密货币联系起来,而这其中很可能藏有欺诈风险。

The social media team at the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission's Fort Worth office has taken aim at the recent trend of publicly traded companies looking for a blockchain price boost.

As previously reported, the past months have seen a range of companies, including a virtual reality platform and a Long Island iced tea distributor, "pivot" to blockchain – and subsequently benefit from the market windfall thanks to investors.

Those dizzying price gains have elicited criticism, a public stock freeze or two and, now, a crack from the Forth Worth SEC, which posted earlier today:

Other companies which pivoted to crypto or blockchain focuses include Riot Blockchain, formerly BiOptix Diagnostics, and LongFin, which saw a 2,600 percent stock jump after purchasing a blockchain micro-lending company.

While these companies have announced efforts to work with blockchain or, at the very least, mine cryptocurrencies (as seen in a number of past filings, organizations like the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) have sounded the alarm on such announcements.

Specifically, the group warned investors to be wary about any publicly traded stocks that boast having a connection to the tech. It stated in a release last month that "it's easy for companies or their promoters to make glorified claims about new products, services and other cryptocurrency-related connections," noting that the tactic could be deployed by would-be fraudsters.
