In court, he argued that his $10 Million political contributions were essentially loans. Salame agreed to surrender $1.6 Billion in assets and give up two properties and a Porsche.

It is critical for individuals and corporations involved in the cryptocurrency space to adhere to legal and ethical standards. As the industry continues  to grow, regulatory measures and enforcement actions will play a critical role in ensuring transparency and protecting the interests of investors and the general public.
