Crypto regulations and how to market in the Age of the SEC

Undeniably technology’s evolution pace is light years ahead of regulatory frameworks. The regulation of the token economy is one of the most conflictive tasks within the ICO ecosystem. The financial and logistic burdens of creating a compliant, publicly-traded security are high for most companies, let alone startups on the blockchain. Therefore, if you want to launch and ICO or STO that is also available to American consumers, it has to clearly pass the Howey Test. Regulations in the European Union also closely mirror the Howey Test’s guidelines.  We will give a global view of regulation, how different countries approach the issue and in what ways investors are protected against bad practices.  Crypto draws upon several existing areas of law, the most obvious that it applies to is securities law. Issues such as defining what an investment is and what is not an investment. Also, issues like soliciting outside investors, private round, how to handle it, and where to register the offering. Learn about banking regulatory structures like anti-money laundering (AML) and know your customer (KYC).
