Here’s an extraordinary fact about the 2018 bear market: business for Bitcoin-lawyers is booming. Forty-five lawsuits involving cryptocurrency were filed in the first half of this year, reports blockchain research unit Diar. That’s triple the amount of all the lawsuits filed last year. This is not the moon we were looking for. Diar emphasizes the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) as a primary contributor to this trend. It notes the SEC is responsible for 30 percent of the cases filed, and recent moves have indicated there are to be loads more.
