加拿大证券监管机构:“很多”ICO代币满足证券的定义

上周,加拿大证券管理局(后文简称CSA)发布了一份关于“加密货币产品”的工作通知,这也是该国监管机构为监管这种新型融资模式提供的最新明确指示。

今年三月,加拿大安大略省监管机构发布了一份ICO建议。而一个月之后,美国证券交易委员会(SEC)表示其监管规定可能适用于某些代币出售。

CSA的这份通知概述了那些参与推出和管理ICO的公司所需要满足的要求,以及此后上线这些ICO代币的交易所。最值得注意的是,这份通知表示加拿大监管机构所调查的“很多”数字代币都符合证券的定义,从而引发了一系列新的法律监管需求。

在这份通知中,CSA曾不止一次表示某些代币更加可能符合证券定义,然而有一些ICO推动者却认为不应对ICO代币适用这一监管要求。

除此之外,这份通知中还为在加拿大创建加密货币投资基金的公司提供了一些指导方针。同时,CSA它还邀请那些有兴趣推出ICO的公司考虑签署一份所谓的监管沙箱,通过这个沙箱在限制环境内测试新的乐天堂娱乐产品。

Securities regulators in Canada have released a wide-ranging statement on initial coin offerings or ICOs.

The staff notice on "Cryptocurrency Offerings" from the Canada Securities Administrators (CSA) – an umbrella group composed of the country's regional and local securities watchdogs – provides the clearest indication yet as to how regulatory bodies plan to oversee the emerging funding model.

The release comes after regulators in Ontario published an advisory on ICOs in March, and just under a month after the US Securities and Exchange Commission stated that its rules may apply to some token sales.

The notice outlines the requirements for companies involved in the launch and management of ICOs, as well as the exchanges that later list those assets for trading. Perhaps most notably, it reveals that "many" of the digital tokens investigated by regulators in Canada fall under the definition of a security, thereby triggering a range of legal requirements.

This sentiment – that such tokens are more likely to fall under the definition of a security – is echoed elsewhere in the notice, where staffers point out that some ICO promoters have "[taken] the position that the coins/tokens are not subject to securities laws."

"However, in many cases, when the totality of the offering or arrangement is considered, the coins/tokens should properly be considered securities," the CSA wrote. "In assessing whether or not securities laws apply, we will consider substance over form."

The notice, which is republished below, also includes guidance for firms looking to create cryptocurrency investment funds in Canada. It further invites firms that are interested in launching an ICO to consider signing up for a so-called regulatory sandbox, through which new financial products can be tested in a limited setting.
