SEC Seeks Sanctions Against Individuals Behind Alleged Cryptocurrency Scam PlexCoin 1170

The case launched by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) against PlexCorps, also known as PlexCoin, and the individuals behind this scheme – Dominic Lacroix and Sabrina Paradis-Royer, continues at the New York Eastern District Court, with the US regulator having hard time to make the defendants co-operate, or, at the very least, comply with Court orders.

On Tuesday, September 25th, the Commission submitted a document to the Court, asking for leave to file a motion to compel and a motion for discovery sanctions against Dominic Lacroix and Sabrina Paradis-Royer. The regulator argues that the defendants continue to ignore Court orders concerning discovery, accounting of assets and repatriation of assets.

In the Court’s Order from December last year, for example, the Court ordered the defendants, among other things, to produce within three business days “a sworn verified written accounting” reflecting the amounts and locations of investor assets raised from the PlexCoin ICO, and to “immediately” transfer to the registry of the Court all assets “derived from PlexCoin or PlexCoin Tokens or PlexCorps”. These deadlines were extended to December 27, 2017, by a stipulation of the parties and Order of this Court, which specifically required the defendants to provide to the Commission “a full list of bank and brokerage accounts . . . and any blockchain addresses through which investor funds were solicited or received,” as well as the “sworn verified accounting”. To date, however, the defendants have not complied with any of these orders.

Furthermore, in August this year, the Court ordered that, by September 18, 2018, the Individual Defendants are to submit to the Commission all items ordered produced by the December Order, including, but not limited to, the accounting of investor funds and the list of Individual Defendants’ accounts and assets. Nevertheless, the defendants have neither produced the ordered accounting and list of assets nor repatriated any funds.

The SEC argues that the defendants are simply disobeying this Court’s orders and the very production deadlines they have repeatedly stipulated to. Their persistent failure to comply with the Court’s orders evidences that the defendants have no intention of participating meaningfully in this litigation.

The regulator warns that, absent the sanction it requests, the defendants could employ this strategy indefinitely, including potentially after the entry of a preliminary injunction. Delaying the inevitable final judgment only increases the likelihood that Dominic Lacroix and Sabrina Paradis-Royer will continue to dissipate investor assets in violation of this Court’s orders, the SEC says.

Let’s recall that, in its complaint, the US regulator says that it has to take an emergency action to stop Lacroix, a recidivist securities law violator in Canada, and his partner Paradis-Royer from further misappropriation of investor funds illegally raised through the fraudulent and unregistered offer and sale of securities called “PlexCoin” or “PlexCoin Tokens” in a purported “Initial Coin Offering”.

From August 2017 through the present, the defendants have obtained investor funds, purportedly $15 million from thousands of investors, including those throughout the United States and in the Eastern New York District, through materially false and misleading statements.

Lacroix and Paradis-Royer allegedly misappropriated investor funds and engaged in other deceptive acts relating to investments in the PlexCoin Token, despite having both been enjoined by a Quebec tribunal from engaging in the activities that are the subject of the SEC action.

Rarimo Foundation Launches MetaMask Snap, RariMe, Enabling Cryptocurrencies and Identity Credentials To Be Stored and Managed From A Single Wallet 10159

Rarimo Foundation has launched RariMe, a MetaMask Snap that enables MetaMask users to store and manage identity credentials through their MetaMask wallet, developed by Consensys.

RariMe is built with MetaMask’s Snaps platform, which launched on 12 September and allows developers to build applications that can bring new functionalities to MetaMask’s users.

RariMe introduces an entirely new social identity function to MetaMask and ends wallet fragmentation; users will no longer have to switch between their identity and digital asset wallets. In a single swoop, MetaMask users will instantly have access to identity storage and privacy-enhancing Zero-Knowledge Proof (ZKPs) generation and management. Given that in 2022, MetaMask surpassed 100 million users, this significantly expands the presence of digital identity.

RariMe also further improves the user experience, by ensuring that all credentials are fully multi-chain. For one of the first times in Web3, users will not have to issue separate proofs for separate chains. Instead, they can issue a proof on the chain of their choice and then use it seamlessly across Ethereum, Polygon, BNB Chain, and Avalanche. This is possible because RariMe was built atop of interoperability protocol, Rarimo, which enables state replication and on-chain verification.

Lasha Antadze, Co-Founder of Rarify Labs, commented, “RariMe snap dramatically improves the user experience around digital identities. Users will no longer have to switch between multiple apps and interfaces and the friction between identities and crypto has been removed. This will fuel the growth of the digital identity space and the many emerging Web3 movements that require identities, including decentralized social media and on-chain gaming.”

“MetaMask is thrilled to welcome Rarimo as one of the trailblazing builders for MetaMask Snaps. We strongly believe that permissionless innovation is fundamental to a decentralized ecosystem. With Snaps, we’re not just expanding features; we’re excited to see Rarimo use Snaps to open the doors to digital identities, credentials management, and decentralized social protocols, ultimately empowering our users like never before,” said Christian Montoya, Product Lead at MetaMask Snaps.

From launch, RariMe will be integrated with Rarimo’s Proof-of-Humanity plug-in which was released last month to enable users to leverage identity credentials from Unstoppable Domains, Civic, and Gitcoin to prove that they are humans and not bots. RariMe will automatically provide users with an end-to-end flow on the reputation-building platforms Galxe, Zeely, and quest focused application QuestN.

About Rarimo

Rarimo is the interoperability protocol for digital social identities. Its distinctive infrastructure enables identity components to be integrated on-chain, and seamlessly ported across ecosystems. This ensures that Web3 can develop without the walled gardens and cumbersome identity practices of Web2.
