CFTC发布加密货币投资警示公告

7月17日,美国商品期货交易委员会(后文简称CFTC)发布了一份关于ICO和加密资产的咨询公告,以提醒潜在买家在投资前做好功课。

据悉,CFTC在发布的公告中写到:“客户建议:在购买数字货币或token时要谨慎”,在某种程度上这与美国证券交易委员会(后文简称SEC)发出的警告类似。

迄今为止,SEC最著名的警告或许应该就是其创建的虚假“HoweyCoin”ICO网站。

为防范下一轮的投资诈骗行为,美国证券交易委员会SEC于5月创建并推出了自己的模拟ICO投资网站“HoweyCoin”,用这种吸引眼球的方式来教育投资者、警告投资者token销售涉及的风险,尤其是那些提供巨额回报的token。

虽然美国证券交易委员会(SEC)专注于可能违反证券法的加密资产,但CFTC似乎正在着手澄清将这些资产归类为某些金融产品的规范。CFTC指出,“数字代币和硬币也可以是衍生品或商品,具体取决于其结构。”

迄今为止,CFTC在这一领域的大部分公开工作都集中在针对美国国内的欺诈行为。自今年初以来,该机构已提起几起民事诉讼。据报道,CFTC也参与了对加密货币市场操纵行为的调查。

据知情人士近日向《华尔街日报》透露,美国商品期货交易委员会(CFTC)要求一些加密货币交易所提供用户的交易数据,以确保这些交易所没有操纵加密货币市场。

The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) has issued an advisory on initial coin offerings (ICOs) and crypto-assets, warning would-be buyers to do their homework before investing.

Its "Customer Advisory: Use Caution When Buying Digital Coins or Tokens" mirrors, in some ways, words of caution that have come out of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. That agency's most famous warning to date is, perhaps, its fake "HoweyCoin" ICO website, which humorously warned investors about the risk involved in token sales, particularly those that offer outsized returns.

And while the SEC has focused on the side of crypto-assets that may run afoul of securities law – with some synergies between the two sides taking place – the CFTC appears to be moving to clarify where such assets may be considered the types of financial products it regulates.

The agency noted that "digital tokens and coins can also be derivatives or commodities, depending on how they are structured." Back in 2015, the CFTC first said that it considers cryptocurrencies like bitcoin to be commodities, and today's missive indicates that some of the crypto-assets coming out in the market today could fall under the agency's purview.

To date, much of the CFTC's public-facing work in this area has been focused on targeting fraud within the U.S.

The agency has filed several civil lawsuits since the start of the year, and the CFTC is reportedly involved in an ongoing probe into cryptocurrency market manipulation.
