涉嫌违反监管条例,MAS叫停证券令牌发行

近日,新加坡金融管理局(后文简称MAS)宣布,在满足《证券期货法》(Securities and Futures Act,后文简称SFA)相关要求前,禁止一家ICO发行机构继续在新加坡发行证券代币。

此前,这家ICO发行机构原本打算依靠SFA豁免条例,在无需向MAS提供招股说明书的情况下向授信投资者提供证券产品。然而,这个豁免条件也存在一定限制,比如不能进行广告推广。然而,这家ICO机构却未能遵守广告限制,因为其法律顾问在LinkedIn网站上发了一篇帖子,吸引公众关注这个产品,所以也就无法享受豁免条件,因此必须暂停其全球ICO发行。

因此,MAS再次提醒ICO机构,务必遵守《证券期货法》有关招股书规定,并在试图享受豁免条件时确保不违反广告宣宣传限制。

此外,MAS还提醒投资者,数字代币产品存在多重投机风险、欺诈风险和可靠纪录不足等问题,投资者在进行相关投资前务必要对上述信息了解清楚。

 

The Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) has warned an initial coin offering (ICO) issuer not to proceed with its securities token offering in Singapore until it can fully comply with regulatory requirements under the Securities and Futures Act (SFA).

MAS also reminds consumers to understand the benefits and risks of any product or service before committing to an investment.

The issuer had intended to rely on an exemption under the SFA, which allows an issuer to make an offer of securities to accredited investors without registering a prospectus with MAS. The exemption from prospectus registration is however subject to certain conditions, including a requirement not to advertise the offer. The issuer in this case failed to comply with the advertising restriction when its legal advisers put out a LinkedIn post accessible to the public calling attention to the offer. As such, the issuer would not be able to rely on the exemption from prospectus registration. Following MAS’ warning, the issuer has suspended its global offering of securities tokens.

MAS reminds all digital token issuers that the offer of securities tokens must comply with all applicable securities laws including the requirement to register a prospectus with MAS. Issuers who intend to rely on the prospectus exemptions under the SFA should note that these exemptions are subject to conditions, including advertising restrictions.

Consumers should ensure that they understand the benefits and risks of any product or service before parting with their monies. Specifically for digital token offerings, the risks include a highly speculative valuation, heightened risk of fraud and lack of a proven track record. This makes it difficult for investors to establish the credibility of the offerings.
