Just sharing what's going on in the Philippines. Regulations for ICOs has been posted currently at the end train 3 (4 trains total) before it is accepted by the government. Both companies and associations have been very active working with the PH-SEC (yes and they are open for opinions). The initial draft (linked here) was first posted in August this year and it's moving a fast pace. It's estimated to be complete by November.

Philippines is very welcoming, and for sure they will adopt this system. I hear a lot of good news from here and I know more Filipinos will be educated enough to invest in cryptocurrency. Some of the exchanges already working to get license from the Philippine government. More countries in Asia will do the same thing and this can really help their economy grow in the future. Congrats for us for this one! Smiley

The Philippines central bank really very supportive to cryptocurrencies, because it  believes the innovative system that  bitcoin and the blockchain technology brings to the Philippines currency system, aside from that  the Philippines central bank, believes that blockchain technology is fast  and economical when use for remittances.

Looks like they'll heat things up in ASEAN. I was fully expecting Malaysia or even Indonesia to organise themselves ahead of the Philippines, even though mainstream adoption (at least from what I can tell) is actually very much embedded in urban Philippines. Of course, this is probably because of the initial push from the PEZAs, not least from the Cagayan EZ.

Is this going to be the first one outside of Cagayan with this specific licence, which if I recall will have over 10 exchange licenses issued already. All of these are sort of FDI, though, wonder when the first local exchange will come up. The central bank there definitely seems a lot quicker to decide, while those in Indonesia and Malaysia are playing cat and mouse, despite the change of leadership in the latter.

As far as PDAX, there's no clear date as of yet. But we still have our coins.ph trading platform to used as a "playing ground" for less experienced Filipino traders. Yes, it seems the BSP or Central Bank of the Philippines really wanted to push crypto/blockchain in the country ahead of many ASEAN nations, they wanted to be the first around the region to be the central hub. Indonesia and Malaysia are somewhat conservative though, perhaps undecided on still in the gray area, but sooner or later will they follow this trend among ASEAN neighbors so crypto is really a boom in the region.

Yeah, coins.ph has been a sturdy player, and Luno has been making its moves in all three countries, going so far as to have talks with both the central banks of Indonesia and Malaysia. But they've been strangely quiet this year after running user research in Indo and Msia, I can understand with the political changes there coinciding with the bear market, but with both also having formed informal "blockchain associations" I really thought they would move first. Adoption seemed to have started early there, with volumes at LBC peaking in 2016 and maintaining high levels in 2017. My personal feeling is that the FDI (including crypto related) was much higher in PH, and the existing close relationships with US but I thought Duterte in power meant lukewarm sentiments to those. Guess I was wrong!

This is what i like with PH government which they are open when it comes to crypto but just to expect there would really be regulations or laws which would needed to be followed.When it comes to exchange license its good to see another options but i would say nothing would beat Coins.ph.

There are already lots of money remittances on PH which this will really alarm on huge or gradual acceptance of Crypto into this country.

Duterte really knows how to play in this game, LOL, US, China and Russia is his ground. And I think those people he put on critical economic and financial positions (sort of pro-crypto) really saw the potential of bitcoin and blockchain technology that's why the country is very open and welcome. Specially the cross border payments, if Filipinos working abroad would transact everything in crypto, would be a boom for the Philippines.

I think the Philippines is doing the right thing because this will have an impact on the economy there and maybe Crypto Indonesia experts will be part of the development of Philippine cryptocurrency like a project developed in Singapore which can be said that 25% of the team Indonesian people

Since the best Export of the Philippines is their people (OFW), I can say that adopting cryptocurrency/blockchain technology is really a good idea so OFW's can now transfer money easily without going to any remittances. Philippines is a great place for cryptocurrency only if all people know how to invest, well its hard for the government to do that but this simple steps can become more big in the future.

Let me know what you think!

The government is doing it right for the Filipinos as we all knows that scam ICOs are now rampant in the society in which some are using directly the Bitcoin platform just to steal the hard earned money of the people. Kudos to the government and hopefully this will be fully approve in no time.
