US Security and Exchanges Commission Investigation
On July 6 2023, Douglas Park, the elected legal counsel of the BarnBridge DAO took to social media platforms including X (formerly Twitter) to state that the US SEC had started investigating the BarnBridge DAO. Soon after, BarnBridge co-founder Tyler Ward confirmed Park’s message was accurate. Following Park’s revelation, the BOND token dipped by 10%, sending shockwaves among its investors and members of its decentralized autonomous organization (DAO).
Suspicions over SEC Investigation Announcement
Some DAO members raised suspicions over Park’s announcement with one member on Discord asking for supporting evidence of the SEC’s investigation implying that Barnbridge’s founders could be using it as an excuse to facilitate an “exit strategy” to possibly defraud investors. Tyler Ward however rebutted this allegation stating it would be “the worst thought-out rug attempt ever attempted.“
