缺乏投资者保护,纳斯达克CEO表示要远离ICO

上周,纳斯达克CEO Adena Friedman在美国乔治城大学举办的金融市场质量会议上指出,ICO模式缺乏投资者保护以及组织者信息披露标准,并表示,纳斯达克目前对这种融资模式持规避态度。

通过ICO,基于区块链的代币可以经由公开发售的形式被出售,从而创造出新的网络。但是这种区块链用例已经因为欺诈横行而遭受了诸多批评,并且已经引起了全球监管机构的关注,而这也是纳斯达克选择规避ICO的原因。

 

Friedman的评论是值得注意的,因为自2015年以来,纳斯达克就已经公开研究区块链技术,旨在帮助为创业公司创建新的资本市场。这个交易所运营方已经申请了大量关于区块链技术的专利。而她的表态还正值美国金融监管机构开始对ICO采取严厉的立场。

本月初,美国证监会(SEC)主席Jay Clayton告诉一个国会委员会说,ICO是“拉高倒货行为非常频繁的领域”,这可能会对其底层区块链技术的应用产生负面影响。

不过,他还表示他对SEC跟踪和制止ICO欺诈案件的能力“谨慎乐观”。

The CEO of global stock exchange operator Nasdaq said this week that her firm is steering clear of initial coin offerings (ICOs).

Nasdaq CEO Adena Friedman, speaking at the Financial Markets Quality Conference at Georgetown University, criticized the lack of investor protection and disclosure standards among organizers that use the blockchain use case.

Through ICOs, blockchain-based tokens are sold via public sales in order to bootstrap the development of new networks. But the use case has attracted criticism for the prevalence of fraud, drawing the attention of regulators worldwide.

It's for that reason, Friedman said, that Nasdaq is staying away.

She told attendees at the event:

"I would call (an ICO) a bleeding edge type of construct. Nasdaq doesn't tend to get engaged in the bleeding edge."

Friedman's comments are notable given that Nasdaq has been publicly working with blockchain since 2015 in a bid to create new capital markets for startups. The exchange operator has also filed a number of patent applications that seek to apply the tech.

Her remarks also come after the top US regulator for financial markets moved to strike a critical stance toward ICOs.

Earlier this month, SEC Chair Jay Clayton told a Congressional committee that ICOs are "a ripe area for pump-and-dump," which could have a negative impact on adoption of the use case's underlying tech.

However, he also said he is "cautiously optimistic" about the SEC's ability to track and end fraud cases in the US.
