The Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) has published an update on how it intends to regulate crypto-related businesses and initial coin offerings (ICOs). In this guideline, the financial regulator outlines requirements that need to be followed for cryptocurrency businesses to be compliant with the ASIC Act.

Going forward, companies issuing crypto assets deemed to be financial products will be required by law to procure an Australian Financial Services (AFS) license.

21:15 Yahoo.com Business Swiss Regulator FINMA Concludes That Mining Firm Envion’s ICO Was Unlawful

The Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA) has finished enforcement proceedings against crypto mining firm Envion AG, the authority announced on March 27. As a result of the investigation launched in July 2018, FINMA concluded that Envion’s initial coin offering (ICO), which closed in early January 2018, was unlawful. Envion, a blockchain firm that claims to provide decentralized, clean energy for mobile mining units, faced a liquidation order from the cantonal court of Zug in November 2018 for conducting an allegedly unauthorized ICO.

18:43 TheNextWeb.com Swiss watchdog says cryptocurrency mining firm’s $90M ICO was illegal

Financial regulators in Switzerland have disclosed the full extent of the fraud committed by Envion AG, a cryptocurrency “mining operation” that illegitimately collected over $90 million with an initial coin offering (ICO) last year. With this investigation, the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA) seeks to make it clear that ICOs can indeed fall within the scope of Switzerland‘s banking laws, reports Swissinfo. Regulators found Envion AG had unlawfully received deposits from at least 37,000 investors that took part in its ICO, which concluded in January 2018.

Two sad pieces of news have caught my attention recently, both regarding the shady world of ICOs. The first story was of an ICO failing to sell any tokens at all and resorting to selling the project on eBay. It claims that the project’s social media channels and thousands of lines of code are its selling point. The second story was that the former CEO of Enron is investigating a blockchain project one month after being released from prison. This is the same CEO who presided over one of the biggest fraud scandals in recent memory.
