In a recent interview for CoinDesk, Sian Jones, a senior advisor to the Gibraltar Financial Services Commission (GFSC), said that it’s not the regulator’s place to determine “what ‘good’ looks like in token sales,”

Jones added that creating a set of principles for best practice is the correct approach, as compared to implementing one-size-fits-all regulations to the blockchain. “The marketplace will determine what a good ICO looks like,” she said.

Jones’ comment comes following recent moves by the commission to regulate ICO via a licensing system.
