Richard B. Levin, Chair of Polsinelli’s Financial Technology & Regulatory Practice, authored the BlockTribune article, “Time To Kik SAFTS To The Curb.”

On June 4, 2019, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) launched an enforcement action against Kik Interactive claiming the company offered and sold one trillion digital tokens (“Kin”) in violation of the Securities Act of 1933 (the “Securities Act”).
