国际证监会组织就ICO融资发出警告

近日,国际证监会组织(后文简称IOSCO)对ICO融资发出警告。此前,多个国家证券监管机构已经发出过类似警示,所以IOSCO此举也并不令人感到意外。

IOSCO是一个证券监管机构的国际政策论坛,致力于推动全球证券监管标准的制定。该组织的成员占世界证券市场的大约95%。 IOSCO董事会由34个证券监管机构组成,包括美国证券交易委员会、英国FCA、新加坡金融管理局、中国、澳大利亚、德国等所有大型监管机构。

国际证监会组织委员会在评论ICOs时认为,这种代币证券不够规范、投机性强、风险明显、投资者整体资本面临风险。

IOSCO认为,尽管一些运营商提供了合法的投资机会为项目或企业提供资金,但他们担心发行人通常通过在线分销渠道将投资者属地管辖区之外的投资者集中到散户投资者身上“引发投资者保护问题”。尽管美国已经表示将会对跨区进行的虚假ICO项目进行追查,但调查本身的难度也不容小视。

在去年10月份的一次会议上IOSCO董事会注意到,ICO正越来越多地被用于筹集资金。在这次会议之后,国际证监会组织向成员发表了一份声明,说明了ICO的风险,并提到了成员和其他监管机构对ICO采取的各种方法。

国际证监会组织委员会还建立了一个ICO磋商网络,成员可以通过该网络讨论他们的经验,并提请其他监管机构关注,包括任何跨境问题。

The International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO) has published a warning on initial coin offerings (ICOs). The Board Communication should come as no surprise as dozens of national securities regulators have published warnings already as public officials struggle to grapple with the concept of digital assets and investor protection challenges.

IOSCO is an international policy forum for securities regulators that strives to set global standards for securities regulation. The organization’s membership represents about 95% of the worlds securities markets. The IOSCO Board is made up of 34 securities regulators and includes all of the big market regulators like the US SEC, UK FCA, Singapore MAS, China, Hong Kong, Australia, Germany etc.

Commenting on ICOs, the IOSCO Board calls tokenized securities as not standardized and highly speculative with clear risks putting investors entire capital at risk.

IOSCO importantly notes that while some operators are providing legitimate investment opportunities to fund projects or businesses, they are concerned that issuers targeting of ICOs to retail investors through online distribution channels by parties often located outside an investor’s home jurisdiction “raises investor protection concerns.” Pursuing enforcement actions beyond ones home jurisdiction can be a challenge, although the US has stated it will pursue bogus ICOs regardless of jurisdiction.

In a meeting last October, the Board of IOSCO discussed the growing usage of ICOs to raise capital as an area of concern. Following this meeting, IOSCO issued a statement to its members regarding the risks of ICOs and referenced various approaches to ICOs taken by members and other regulatory bodies.

The IOSCO Board has also established an ICO Consultation Network through which members can discuss their experiences and bring their concerns, including any cross-border issues, to the attention of fellow regulators.
