Database of SEC, CFTC, DoJ, and Other U.S. Decisions in Blockchain and Digital Asset Cases

BLA members are compiling a database with short summaries of litigation releases, administrative

proceedings, and other opinions and orders issued by the SEC, CFTC, DoJ, and other U.S. authorities

about companies and activities in the crypto space. The idea is to provide a compact one-stop-shop

in a searchable database with links to the full decisions. Click here to access the current version, which
