The blockchain startup firm Enigma has filed a legal registration letter for its ENG token with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). In line with the document published with the SEC’s official documents, the registration statement is tied to the privacy-focused firm’s February settlement with the project’s 2017 ICO’s regulatory body. In February, Enigma resolved a lawsuit accusing it completed a securities sale during its IPO. It settled the filing with a $500,000 fine. It also agreed to reimburse funds to investors who purchased into its $45 million ICO. 

The project’s registration letter states that the ENG tokens currently operate as a payment tool on the project’s data network. As per the filing, once the registration statement becomes active, Enigma will be under the Exchange Act. This indicates that it has to file an annual 10-K, quarterly 10-Q & presently 8-K reports.
