Ooki DAO to shut down after ‘precedent setting’ court battle with CFTC By Cointelegraph


A U.S. District Judge has entered a default judgment order that requires Decentralized Organization Ooki DAO to permanently shut down and pay a civil monetary penalty of $643,542.

The Commodity Futures Trading Commission initially filed a lawsuit against Ooki DAO in September 2022, accusing the DAO of illegally offering retail margin and leverage trading services, and “unlawfully acting” as a futures commission merchant.
