It is said that it is aimed at submitting a revision proposal of the Financial Instruments and Exchange Act and the Fund Settlement Law next year at the ordinary Diet session, and it is said that future registration will be obligatory for the FSA to sell its own currency.
In this revision proposal, it is about ICO of two types of tokens, “Investment type” which can obtain dividend and “Settlement type” which can be used for purchasing your own service.
According to the new regulation, purchasing “investment type” is limited to professional institutional investors such as funds that can be confirmed including risk judgment, individual investors can participate in the purchase of “settlement type”, however, It seems that we will establish self-regulation rules such as screening and thoroughly protect investors .
In addition, it is reported that it is a policy to incorporate in the prohibition clause of the Money Commerce Act, such as acts of fraudulently raising the price of the cryptocurrency by deliberately flowing false information.
Although the FSA regulates ICOs, opportunities for investors to participate will be limited, but as long as ICO fraud is eradicated and projects that are disadvantageous to investors decrease It is conceivable.
