A draft law to regulate Gibraltar’s ICOs

February 11, 2018 by Ashley MAO

A draft law regulating Gibraltar’s Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) is underway, according to Gibraltar Financial Services Commission (GFSC).

A senior advisor with the GFSC, Sian Jones, said that the new law will be the first in the world to regulate all aspects of digital tokens trading, including promotion, sales and distribution. According to Jones, the new framework introduces the concept of an “authorized sponsor” granting compliance with discourse rules established by the same draft law.

Under the new rules, ICO projects will be required to provide “adequate, accurate and balanced information to anyone buying tokens” said Jones.
