US regulator touts ‘aggressively’ policing crypto in new report

The United States commodities regulator certainly doesn’t want to look like it’s going easy on crypto, revealing it was behind 18 separate enforcement actions targeting digital assets in the 2022 fiscal year.

The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) reported that there were 82 enforcement actions in total as of Oct. 20, 2010. Filled in 2022’s fiscal year, imposing $2.5 billion in “restitution, disgorgement and civil monetary penalties either through settlement or litigation.”
