This Monday, the United States Securities Commission reported a fine imposed on model Kim Kardashian for the alleged promotion on the social network Instagram of the Pump&Dump Ethereum Max scheme.

According to the SEC, the model must pay 1.2 million dollars after incurring in the promotion of the aforementioned scheme on the social network without having the proper permit.

The regulatory body in the United States issued a statement through which it clarifies that the accused has promised to cancel the fine and collaborate with the corresponding investigation.
