Texas Takes Action Against Cryptocurrency Mining Company Promising 200% Profit

The Texas State Securities Board has issued an emergency cease and desist order to an Australia-based cryptocurrency mining company and its affiliates. According to the order, the company represents that investments in its mining contracts are “guaranteed to 200% profit.”

200 Percent Return Guaranteed
According to the order, Aws Mining’s website claims that the company is mining cryptocurrency through farms located in Guangzhou, China; Ingushetia, Russia; Ciudad del Este, Paraguay; Anhui, China; and Hebei, China.

Texas Takes Action Against Cryptocurrency Mining Company Promising 200 Percent ProfitThe order describes that the companies and their executives “are issuing investments in cryptocurrency mining referred to as crypto mining power contracts, and they are representing [that] the crypto mining power contracts are ‘guaranteed to 200% profit’ and that each crypto mining power contract ‘is guaranteed to 200% return on purchase price.’”

In addition, the companies are using a multi-level marketing network of sales agents to sell these mining contracts and recruit new agents on social media. The board emphasized:

They are also telling potential investors the crypto mining power contracts pay a ‘200% passive return on every investment.’

Furthermore, the order noted that “Although potential investors are led to believe they will receive a 200% return on principle invested in crypto mining power contracts,” Aws Mining “is now disclaiming the guarantee of profitability and instead representing that investors assume the risks associated with the investment.”

The board subsequently concluded that the companies and individuals named in the order “are engaging in other illegal, fraudulent, deceptive, and/or misleading practices in connection with the offer of crypto mining power contracts to Texas residents.”
