1  Economy / Securities / Re: What legal options do US citizens have for investing in lending ICO's? on: January 07, 2018, 08:46:43 AM
So in a nutshell investing legally is highly unlikely here in the states...

Thanks for the reply


Assuming that all ICO's are considered by the SEC to be securities, my cursory research suggests that there are two ways you can invest in them legally.

1. ICO issuer registers with the SEC and complies with securities laws- everyone can invest
2. ICO issuer does not register with the SEC- only accredited investors can invest

Scenario 1 is fairly unlikely, and most ICO issuers usually don't care to ensure that all investors are accredited, so they more often just don't allow US investors.

Now of course most will say "there are none", or "use a VPN", sure I know that, but what i'm asking is what about investing while outside of the US?

Or possibly dual citizenship. Would this make a difference in some capacity?

I would love to hear what some others are doing outside of using a VPN.

Any links to legal sources online which address this delima and offer possible solutions would be appreciated.

Thanks!
