SEC下月将召开比特币和ICO投资者主题会议

美国证券交易委员会(SEC)将于6月13日在佐治亚州立大学举行SEC投资者会议。到时与会者可以与美国证券交易委员会成员会面,就有关金融科技、共同基金、防范欺诈和加密货币等监管问题进行非正式讨论。

包括主席Jay Clayton在内的SEC五位委员都将出席。此前Jay Clayton曾在普林斯顿大学发表了关于加密货币和ICO的演讲。当他被问及是否认为ICO本质上有欺诈性质时,Jay Clayton说“绝对不是”。他希望SEC提出的监管措施能够通过剔除不良行为者,促进合法项目蓬勃发展,从而对加密货币领域产生积极影响。

最近,许多加密货币社区成员都在担心,如果美国证券交易委员会将比特币和以太坊等加密货币定义为证券,加密货币有可能被看做是一种资产。那么将会对税收和交易者身份有严格的规定,对加密货币市场灾难性的影响不言而喻。

不过,Jay Clayton表示,SEC真正关注的是ICO代币,而不是比特币,这让社区成员安心了一些。以太坊联合创始人Joseph Lubin已表明,ETH不是证券。

目前在如何对加密代币进行分类和ICO投资等问题上,投资者还存在困惑。所以SEC在6月举行的讨论是必要的,SEC有可能会对社区迫切关心的问题作出澄清。

The US Securities and Exchange Commission are holding the SEC Investor Conference in Atlanta this year on June 13 at Georgia State University.

There will be a town hall event followed by break-out events wherein attendants can meet with members of the SEC for a more informal discussion on issues regarding regulation in the world of fintech, mutual funds, fraud prevention, and cryptocurrency.

All five SEC commissioners will be in attendance including Chairman Jay Clayton, who had a speech earlier this year about cryptocurrencies and ICOs at Princeton University on April 5. When asked if he thought ICOs were inherently fraudulent Clayton said “absolutely not”, stating that his hope was the regulation introduced by the SEC would have a positive impact on the cryptocurrency space by stamping out bad actors and allowing legitimate projects to thrive.

Many members of the cryptocurrency community have been concerned recently that the SEC is gearing up to classify cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum as securities, meaning that the tokens represented an underlying asset as opposed to being utility tokens. The security classification would have disastrous effects on the market with strict regulations on taxes and even who can or cannot legally own and invest in crypto.

However, Clayton set some minds at ease by saying it was ICO tokens that the SEC were really looking at, not Bitcoin. Meanwhile, the Ethereum co-founder has stated that he is “extremely comfortable” that Ethereum does not qualify as a security.

The confusion over how to classify crypto-tokens and on the processes involved in ICO investment, in general, are the reason discussions like the one being held in June are necessary, and the SEC Bitcoin and ICO session may help to clarify the government’s stance on some of the pressing legal issues being widely discussed in the cryptocurrency community.
