SEC seeks judgement after 'no show’ in $9M Meta 1 Coin fraud case


The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission has requested a default judgment against three companies and four individuals associated with the allegedly fraudulent art and gold-backed cryptocurrency Meta 1 Coin.

The SEC filed its Nov. 18 motion for a default judgment after the defendants failed to appear to put their case, despite having corresponded with both the court and legal representation.

They are accused of defrauding at least 500 investors worldwide out of $9 million in exchange for crypto tokens that Meta 1 Coin allegedly fraudulently represented as being backed by either $1 billion worth of fine art assets or $2 billion worth of gold.
