Maryland Attorney General Brings Action Against Crypto Interest Account Provider

06 Sep 2023 11:37 PM | Anonymous

The Maryland Attorney General’s Securities Division filed an action against various companies, known collectively as “Abra,” and the founder and CEO of Abra, ordering them to cease and desist violating Maryland law in connection with the offer and sale of investments in two interest-bearing crypto depository account.

The Division alleges Abra misrepresented and failed to disclose important information about the Earn and Boost Offerings to its investors; most fundamentally, they failed to disclose and in fact misrepresented Abra’s own solvency (or lack thereof). In addition, Abra and Barhydt misrepresented the actual custodian in possession of certain Earn and Boost assets and failed to disclose that it instead transferred many of these assets to an entity currently subject to multiple government regulatory lawsuits and to a requested asset freeze.
