FCA comment on ICOs

By Rizwan Qayyum

The UK Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) has released a feedback statement on the Distributed Ledger technology discussion paper from April 2017 (DP17/3).

As a part of this, they commented on ICOs, noting:

“On the Initial Coin Offering (ICO) market, the FCA will gather further evidence and conduct a deeper examination of the fast-paced developments. Its findings will help to determine whether or not there is need for further regulatory action in this area beyond the consumer warning issued in September”

The feedback is available here.
