The Complaint alleges that OneCoin Ltd., its related corporate entities, and the companies' founders and principals fraudulently promoted cryptocurrency investments and engaged in an unregistered offering and sale of securities that violated numerous federal securities laws, including Sections 5, 12(a), 15, and 17(a) of the Securities Act of 1933, 15 U.S.C. §§ 77e, 77l(a), 77o, and 77q(a).

The Lawsuit pleads that the Court rescind all investments in OneCoin; return to all investors their funds; require OneCoin to account for all funds raised from investors; and adjudicate that OneCoin and its principals violated multiple securities laws through their fraudulent, unregistered investment scheme.
