Ooki DAO – a decentralized autonomous organization is accused of breaking federal regulations governing commodities,by the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC). The DAO stated that the court should give a default judgment against the organization after the deadline for a response, which was set for January 10, 2023, had passed. Last year, Ooki DAO was accused by the CFTC of operating an unlicensed cryptocurrency futures trading operation. The U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California’s Judge William Orrick ruled that the CFTC should serve Ooki DAO as a whole rather than just one individual. Despite the prior CFTC settlement with Bean and Kistner, Judge Orrick ruled that serving them satisfied this requirement. Bean and Kistner were still token holders.
