Lately there's been a lot of talk about regulation. What about ICO's?

What do you see with the ones complying with governments? It seems to be a big play longevity wise.

For ex. Unikrn got their Malta license, making esports fiat wagering legal in most of europe. Does this pave the way for future ico's? Should this be an indicator of a good, trustworthy ico?

I think it can be a big advantage since a lot of gvmts are indecisive, but once they make a decision, most ico's will be affected if not wiped out. I think a lot of people don't realize how volatile ico's can be and very dependent on legislation and laws.

Second, looked into unikoin and the license combines with Mark Cuban and advisors made then a trustworthy ico in my book.

I think that licensing of the ICO process can play a rather positive role in reducing the risks of fraud, because the whole team will be identified before that. The main thing is that the state does not interfere in the technical side of this process and does not give its conclusion about the need to implement a particular project.

it depends on the type of token, and the industry. it seems like those guys got a license to gamble/esport; i wonder will it be required to register as a fund collecting entity with ones repsective government. these ICOs have undoubtedly been used to wash tainted coins; fuck a mixer, you can get a whole different type of coin, with little to nothing in the way of AML/KYC. if people are going to be conduits for this much money, they will have to behave as money transmitters, as essentially they are acting as a currency exchanger.

we wont like bitcoin so much after they have their way with it. but, it will be ready for mainstream and here to stay once that happens.

but security tokens need a license so far. utility tokens, not so much.

I think that it is more or less, up to the governing bodies of each country,  state, or province to decide exactly what criteria, and area these offerings fit into. In the U.S, depending on how the token is issued, and what terms are given by the company offering the tokens, an ICO could end up being held as a security token, which would acquire you to be an accredited investor, in order to participate in the offering, but you see, each countries laws will vary.
   I think that regulations should be passed in order to give more guidance on how to proceed legally through these workings.

I'm convinced ICOs will be regulated everywhere very soon, the same way IPOs are. It's only logic since both offerings pursue the same goal (raise capital for a new business), from the same kind of investors (you and me).

I guess it would depend on the country and their legal view of bitcoin. Some may legalize bitcoin but would not require licenses for ICOs because they have not recognized or legalized it. In the future, jurisdictions will stipulate or make some regulations for ICOs because of the numerous scams and frauds. It is the duty of the state to protect its citizens so actions such as this will be done. I agree that it will most probably be regulated just like how IPOs are.

If they want more investors they definitely need some licences. It is more of marketing strategy and those legal actions is worth the effort to convinced those who are doubtful on ICO since the image of it is being painted black when the huge of its kind is scamming here.

It also shows the seriousness and sincerity of the team behind it and that extra layer of assurance can make a big difference.

I am not generalizing all but having a license is not always a basis for a legit business. And yes it depends on marketing strategy and offcourse long term investment. it is not always their is profit on the earlier days of the company. It is not also easy for new cryptocurrencies to rise above others are their are releases almost everyday. And sometimes doing the same thing over and over is kind of boredom and thats when they would start doing something shady.

You have a point that license is not a basis for they’re legitimacy but the same point that to have one is more profitable than have nothing. In crypto world even we are intended to decentralized those who give bad light to it must present sincerity or security to they’re future investors.

Being boredom is not a reason to do things suspicious and shady as you mentioned that’s should be discourage. This ICO scamming should be stopped even before it start.

I'm convinced ICOs will be regulated everywhere very soon, the same way IPOs are. It's only logic since both offerings pursue the same goal (raise capital for a new business), from the same kind of investors (you and me).

In coming time either among this, 2 things may happen firstly they may either ban totally ICO and they will not have any rights to raise money or else they will give licences and the company raising ICO will have to file for licence and once its being approved then only it can raise and might be the money would be deposited in the escrow account for safety reasons.

There's no implemented rules about licensing ICOs yet. But hopefully government do this to protect investors from being scammed by these ICOs. From that, both sides will get benefits from it. ICOs will not be prohited once government issues license for them because they will probably comply with terms and regulations of the government. Investors will not be hesitant to spill their money from them because ICOs will be now monitored by the government. If they do something bad. They pay for that. They don't have yo ban ICOs. They just have to set parameters. So it's still under control. Just like exchanges.

no,they don't at the moment
that was on of the reasons for the China's ICO ban
there were no rules regulating them ,so the goverment decided to ban it altogether to prevent capital flight from the country
but seeing the  boom of the ICOs and the ever growing number of people involved in it
goverments will be forced to do something about it,regulating,banning etc. since there are too many scam ICOs out there

I think that licensing of the ICO process can play a rather positive role in reducing the risks of fraud, because the whole team will be identified before that. The main thing is that the state does not interfere in the technical side of this process and does not give its conclusion about the need to implement a particular project.

I agree with Irvinn. It will have a positive impact in terms of scams and such. And yea, if they don't interfere witht he technical aspect, that would great. However, to navigate that kind of path will be difficult as every ICO and token are different.

Seems to benefit unikoingold though. Their sale is 10 hours away from ending and they've already raised 111,000ETH. All the props to them for getting the license and raising this much tho

I can not follow you here as Malta Gaming Authority issues only gambling licenses? Or requested Unikrn separately an ICO license at Malthese authorities or in other countries?

If ICOs need licenses depends on the laws of a country and there are surely a lot of countries that do not ask for licenses.

no,they don't at the moment
that was on of the reasons for the China's ICO ban
there were no rules regulating them ,so the goverment decided to ban it altogether to prevent capital flight from the country
but seeing the  boom of the ICOs and the ever growing number of people involved in it
goverments will be forced to do something about it,regulating,banning etc. since there are too many scam ICOs out there 
This is why they do really do propose such thing and China did able to make the first step which it did able to spark up the possibilities for ICO to be regulated in able for them to control specially on the funds of those investors came from their country.They cant stop the funds flowing out because investors do tend to invest on those ICO back in the past they do really saw on what would be the effects if this thing would still go further. Licensing would really have some advantages for those people who do really love the legality and yet it is somehow give assurance when it comes to security.

It's a gambling license I believe. I think what this brings to light is whether ico's should pursue licenses for validity and credibility.
And on the flipside, should governments/countries have qualifications for valid ico's.

I think what's missing from ico's and them forming so quickly is regulation. Regardless there should be some third party or qualifications for ico's to pass before launching and 99% of them scamming people. It's too easy to scam people too. Make a legit looking whitepaper, build a nice custom site, and spread it like wildfire. No one does their research anyways. Licenses should exist.

I've been watching unikoin for weeks and it only looks better that they got their license. Gambling or not, they are killing it. Plus, getting more creidbility looks better for investors and just people in general. They cared enough to go get a license.

In unikoingold's case, it helps them differentiate from their competition. Another factor I think is that they're such a big platform already, so they are just trying to be safe. Big players are the ones that move.

ICOs are IPOs in digital coin form. Of course they need licenses to operate, ICOs/IPOs are crowd sourcing for a business/product, and Businesses needs  licenses to operate as well, some countries ban this because it may result to fraud which is acceptable and justifiable. You can see that the Government on each country, sees ICOs as IPOs and they are handling ICOs as they handle IPOs.

In legal perspective, I will go for licensing my ICO if I was one of the owner. Sadly because for many controversy that ICO is dramatically facing right now, the September banning from China to South Korea and scamming investors by ICO team left and right. For them that investors bring back confidence by a licence is a must.

It will not present as legal or legit ICO project but it will surely help more than no license at all.

I agree^
This is the best way to prevent scams. Just the other day I saw someone offering services to start your own ico on fiverr for $95 LOL.
This is a great move for unikoingold because they have so many investors interested and a lot of eyes on them.

If you are really sure to do business well you really to comply for those licenses to fully and legally operate, and i think this is a great factor for your ICO so investors will surely the project is legit.

Of course they needed to be licensed, If the Government will not be able to verify and licensed such a business crowd sourcing event then it is considered illegal and Scam. Licenses from Government will also make a risk-free on trusting the ICO because the Government acknowledged it's authenticity.

Just as with IPOs, there should also be regulations for ICOs because generally they are similar. It should be imposed so as to have some control and to avoid frauds and scams. Also, if licenses were issued it would encourage the investors because it would contribute to the legitimacy of an ICO. However, most jurisdictions have not made any specifications in their law because it may not be recognized yet. Some countries may not even recognized the presence of it.

    We are prohibited from collecting money as we would like for any business, and there are rules for collecting money from people. It should be checked whether the money collected in ICOs is used for the job and whether the given promises are fulfilled. Digital funds invested by project investors have become garbage because the money collected in many projects does not use to develop the project. Getting a license to do ICO is not enough, but it may be an advantage to attract more investors.

I don´t believe that should be regulated like the present IPOs, but some basic regulation would be healthy for the market since that would avoid scams and we as investors would benefit from some verification. But completely regulation would probably take good opportunities form the market if these regulations wouldn´t be done guided by an expert from an insider of the cryptocurrency space because most governments are full of policies based on politics and they are unaware of the methods and attributes of the ICO projects.

Sorry, I can't follow you?

Unikrn got a Malta Gaming Authority license for their esports fiat wagering to make their online betting service legal? How is this related to ICOs need a license?

Or is Unikrn an ICO and Malta gave them a license for their ICO project?

To answer your question in general, if an ICO needs a license or not depends on the laws of the country where it operates. At the moment most countries don't require licenses.

Lately there's been a lot of talk about regulation. What about ICO's?

What do you see with the ones complying with governments? It seems to be a big play longevity wise.

For ex. Unikrn got their Malta license, making esports fiat wagering legal in most of europe. Does this pave the way for future ico's? Should this be an indicator of a good, trustworthy ico?

More info: https://www.coindesk.com/regulated-cryptocurrency-betting-just-got-big-boost-europe/


The government will required ICO to have a license for sure if the digital currency will be completely regulated. The main purpose of regulating is to ensure the safety and the welfare of the people including the nations from fraud and scams therefore any ICO that will lead an digital currency marketing should be required a legal documents so that they can be strictly monitored by the government.

Some of ICO may not require any license at all as we can see for example : China decide ban ICO because they like gambling site, it's too risk for people to invest as they did not operate using license.
Even if they operated with license, the government also need to monitor any ICO activity !

ICO's have very positive future. If not regulated it could bring both clash and cash. Some ICO's has very short lifespan, in this point of view they should be regulated to avoid lose of investor's money, but when they began to be trustworthy they should be free floated, unregulated and free from govt. hand.
As Bitcoin became successful as free float crypto currency, all the ICO's should have their chances at some sort of point.

As for me, generally, no. But since it is a form of investment, I guess there is a need for some regulation to protect the investors' from other introductory coins that are fraudulent. I think anything that does not have a regulation with it is prone to abuses thus the need for a regulation that does not completely restrict growth and development. In short, a regulation that is just fitting to the needs of investors and the public in general.

Lately there's been a lot of talk about regulation. What about ICO's?

What do you see with the ones complying with governments? It seems to be a big play longevity wise.

For ex. Unikrn got their Malta license, making esports fiat wagering legal in most of europe. Does this pave the way for future ico's? Should this be an indicator of a good, trustworthy ico?

More info: https://www.coindesk.com/regulated-cryptocurrency-betting-just-got-big-boost-europe/


ICO is a very controversial way to raise money and a majority of the ICOs are not trusted. I have seen many ICOs raised funds from the market but didn't deliver the final product which was promised at the initial stage of the ICO. So I strongly believe that ICOs need to be regulated big time. Otherwise, the crypto market will loose its reputation to a handful of scammers.

I believe, a proper license and regulation will bring back the trust in ICO market and more investment will flow in to it. Having new idea is a good thing and raising fund for any idea is a welcoming move. The the company should also maintain their integrity which is currently lacking. So even if License is not mandatory for many countries, but it is a good to have thing.

Regarding on longevity then regulation would really make some changes compared into those non regulated ones since both investors and its owners will really have the transparency since its being regulated already.If we do try to see now there are lots of Scam projects which results on ending up badly on its investors.This is why im already hesitant on making investment or putting up money.They should really be regulated to lessen the risk on losing too much money on putting up on useless things.

If for security and good for the investors then it would be nice that ICO's have licenses to have to so that in case that it would just run from investors and just collect monies they have a way to get what they invested for. I think these kind of topic has a solution from now and I heard that a company from Russia called IRI has proposed to launch a platform to list all ICO's and all the the individuals that composed it to ensure its not scam one and if they try to run from investors that platform has records they have if just in case it would happen.

Regulations are not (only) there for harassing companies, but for protecting customers. Right now there is noone to protect customers which is why there is SO much scam going on. Therefore yes: ICOs should need licenses or at least regulation.

they should all need to register at least, I agree with you completely but would like to point out the utility token ICOs. if they actually are that and not a security in sheeps clothing. with no promise of profit, these are pretty much like a traditional crowdsale, they are essentially giving you "store points" that you can redeem later up the road map. would be like if walmart had an ico, and gave people walmart giftcards instead of tokens.

but in all cases, you shouldnt be able to collect that much capital without registering with the gov some kind of way. what if an ico is like a front for isis, and we send them 10milli?

Licenses are important to know how sincere does the specific company is.. It’s more of showing your future client that your doing anything for they’re satisfaction and for they’re security.. It’s also a precautionary action on dealing with legality in thing.. Some might not even wanted to get licence for the first place is something shady for me..

I think it's compulsory for every ICO to register and get their own license before they can announce their ICO to the public.

Also, these ICOs need to be regulated and observe by the "Securities Commission" to protect investors from being scammed by scammers.

I wouldn't talk down crowdfunding, lots of scam there as well. That's why many European countries have crowdfunding laws implemented by now. I want to see something similar for ICOs.

I think that the activity of the ICO should be subject to licensing because recently the number of ICOs with fraudulent elements has sharply increased and investors began to suffer from this. Licensing of this type of activity should help reduce such risks. Then the investors' confidence in the ICO will be restored.

No this will then ruin the whole concept of decentralization.
I donot see they need one.
Like eth its donot have any license still the top ico till today.
We need to actually look at the projects an ico is doing and then determine its good or bad.

This must be a necessary for all ICO's to be required to operate with license so that their is assurance for the people that the sites in which they will pour their investments are safe and secured and that their hard earned money will not be lost. By regulating, the ICO will be determine if legit or not because they will be required to submit of lot of necessary documents to prove the legitimacy of their business.

It seems to me that you're oversimplifying the problem. Think about the classic banking system. In order to open the Bank to obtain a license. You are constantly under the control of the Central Bank which is the regulator of the market. It interferes with the bankers to bring the banks into bankruptcy? They just bypass the bans and deprive people of their savings.

Most of the companies should approach the government and start forcing the government to legalize the CryptoCurrency because if they kept delaying many ICO's without any innovation they will start raising the money. The government should involve in this ICO for better future to the companies and to the investors.

They don't need licenses in general. But countries may require them sometime in the future. I know the US is in the process of passing legislation.

Honestly though, I would be more likely to invest in ICOs that have some kind of official permit. That would make it harder for them to run off, which has been rampant among ICOs since their inception.

I do not think ICOs need a license, but the license is not entirely unnecessary. China's prejudices may be resolved with a license. After all, every state wants to keep all things under their control.

I don´t think that a complete regulation with all sorts of difficulties should be created, but basic guidelines should be created and some registration be done, like I said before, not to generate government control, otherwise the very essence of the free world of the blockchain would be corrupted, but to avoid scammers who could be washed out naturally and give the investors, mainly those who are coming to know the crypto investment space have some security when investing their hard earned money. Noted though, that these guidelines should be done by blockchain experts and investors.

It depends on how your government welcomes these ICOs. You should know that governments from around the world treat ICOs differently. As they say, different strokes for different folks. You would have to check on your respective governments on how they control the proliferation of ICOs because it is them who have the legal authority to decide on matters that affect public interest.
