SEC In Philippines Approved New Rules For ICO

16:23 03/08/2018

The Securities and Exchange Commission of the Philippines (SEC) has approved a draft of new rules for an initial coin offering (ICO), which will form the basis for legal operations with cryptocurrencies in the country, Emilio Aquino, the chairman of the SEC, said at a press conference in Manila on August 2.


The rules consist of 12 paragraphs. According to the draft, tokens issued by cryptocurrency companies for the initial coin offering must comply with section 3.1 of the Philippine's Securities Regulation Code. It indicates that the tokens must be registered in the SEC with all the necessary information to protect investors.

Many organizers of the ICO state that tokens cannot be equated to securities and they are out of the SEC jurisdiction. This situation can be called dangerous for investors. They can get trapped by the fraudsters without the complete information on the digital assets. So until proven otherwise, the tokens will be equated to securities, the Commission said.

Emilio Aquino was appointed the chairman of the SEC in June 2018. Previously, he was a commissioner and fought crime in the cryptocurrency sphere. Scammers usually assure investors of big profits, but these promises are often too good to be true, said Akino.


As previously reported, 25 crypto exchanges in the Philippine's economic zone Cagayan will receive licenses.
