maybe its the end to all the stupid scams

The United States Securities and Exchanges Commission (SEC) announced yesterday a new initiative to aid their Enforcement Division to address cyber-based threats.

A Cyber Unit is to be created that will “focus on targeting cyber-related misconduct,” including online market manipulation, hacking, or ICOs. Listing the Cyber Unit’s targets, SEC says it will focus on:

“Market manipulation schemes involving false information spread through electronic and social media. Hacking to obtain material nonpublic information. Violations involving distributed ledger technology and initial coin offerings. Misconduct perpetrated using the dark web. Intrusions into retail brokerage accounts. Cyber-related threats to trading platforms and other critical market infrastructure.”

absolutely necessary! glad to see the SEC taking on the bad actors. unfortunately, i think a lot of them are located internationally, so i don't know how much the SEC can directly do but i'm sure they'll cooperate with international organizations.
