Mark Young, a Solana investor, has filed a class action lawsuit against Solana Foundation, CEO Antoly Yakovenko, co-founder Kyle Samani, and others alleging that they have sold Solana (SOL) cryptocurrencies without a security statement and that they have promoted these cryptocurrencies despite they being unregistered securities, as per various media sources.
“Solana Labs had its first public sale of SOL tokens in a ‘Dutch Auction’ held in March 2020, which was tantamount to an Initial Coin Offering (ICO). Since April 2020, funded by the proceeds they made through their ICO, Defendants have spent vast sums of money promoting SOL securities throughout the United States. These promotional efforts took SOL securities from a relatively obscure crypto-asset to one of the top crypto-assets in the world,” read the suit filing document.
