Does someone know if there is any regulation regarding ICOs?
I have the feeling it's like jungle for now.

Hello,

Remember what is considered a Security.

Now for legal reasons, don't consider this legal advise. Do get with an attorney.

These should be considered my opinions only because of ........

If the digital currency, token, or crypto or whatever you want to call it,

1) Is being backed by any commodity or asset.
2) If it is offering ownership in a company
3) If it represents a vote in the company
4) If the person or entity that acquires it is guaranteed a return on his or her investment.
5) If you use the word investment, that can upset regulators.
6) If you promise interest to the coinholders.

Good Luck

Well done Sir:

Also consider whether the purchaser is looking for passive income, which could just mean appreciation in value, or whether the purchaser is going to take an active role. If the purchaser is investing to obtain passive income it is more likely a security.

If it is a security then you have to be registered as such with the SEC and have their okay to go ahead. Not a small task.

There are exemptions to being a security. One of them is to have only accredited investors.

Best:

I am sure most of the token issued during ICOs are not registered wit the SEC or any other financial regulator, aren't they? So the protection for us willing to invest in such ICO is rather small.

Very nice and good to read about bitcoin information provided by the contributors, even though some is outdated it helps a lot to know more about bitcoin.

I am not very much scared about taxing Cryptocurrencies, what I'm really scared is shutting them down as in China recently happened...
Dont be afraid when the government wants to turn off bitcoin as it happens in china. Actually, the government can never really close the bitcoin. Maybe to close some minning sites, the fauchet can. But can the government close the btc wallet account we have? Can't. As long as our btc wallet account is still active, we can still bitcoin transactions worldwide, because bitcoin transactions are not through the bank.

IMHO, if we want cryptocurrencies to succeed, we should start paying for "crypto-lobbyists", who influence decision making processes.
what do you think of this idea? (ofc, we would need to pay for lobbyists in Washington DC, Brussels, etc).

September 6, 2012
Location: New York City, NY USA

BitFloor files complaint with FBI and Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3).

Abstract: BitFloor suffered a security breach/hack in which about 24,000 BTC were stolen after access by the hacker was obtained to an unencrypted backup copy of the private keys hosted on BitFloor’s systems.  The exchange is essentially insolvent as a result and remains shuttered, except for facilitating withdrawals for the funds that weren’t stolen — the U.S. dollar balances, none of which were impacted as a result of the security breach.

[Update Feb 19, 2014:

This thread is no longer being updated all that much. As Bitcoin further permeates the world, most every nation (or state, etc.) will have content specific to that jurisdiction's involvement with Bitcoin.   Feel free to continue posting as you wish, but this thread will no longer be even close to being a comprehensive list as it had been for a period of time.

Other resources:

 - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Legality_of_bitcoin_by_country [Added Sep 3, 2015]
 - http://coincenter.org/2015/06/tracking-bitcoin-regulation-state-by-state [Added Sep 3, 2015]
 - http://www.coindesk.com/regulation [Added Sep 3, 2015]
 - http://merkletree.io (formerly bitlegal.io I think)  [Added Sep 7, 2015]
 - http://www.cryptocoinlaw.net
 - http://twitter.com/virtuallylaw
 - http://BitcoinFoundation.org

 - http://bitcoinfinancialassociation.org
 - http://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Compilation_of_legal_and_regulatory_information
]

This list is to serve as an index to all the events in which Bitcoin-related topics interact with the courts, police, regulators, etc.

This is similar to how the NEW Articles in the Press Forum thread serves as an index to media mentions.

Topics related to regulations, taxes, etc. are also cataloged in a Bitcoin.it Wiki article:

Compilation of legal and regulatory information
 - http://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Compilation_of_legal_and_regulatory_information

I'm hoping for this thread to remain an index, mostly with just a brief summation and then links towards other threads and external sources -- rather than be where discussion for each index entry occurs.   If an entry is made, feel free to reply with a link to a relevant thread where further discussion occurs or to other related content.

the idea is good! but the community as well as BTC is decentralized. I'm not sure that we can organize lobbyists. Unfortunately every man for himself will fight to the fist high-profile incident.

I have a feeling threads like this will be becoming more popular this year as regulators are looking more carefully at ICOs and are willing to step in and take action where they think they have jurisdiction. Markets like Korea or China where they have simply banned ICOs make for uninteresting reading as there is no well explained policy reasons or abilities to make determinations on grey areas. I think that securities regulators and tax authorities who take an active interest and do not apply a blanket approach will make for very intellectual discussions.
