The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) of Thailand announced a regulatory framework for initial coin offerings and cryptocurrency. The details include a list of seven approved cryptocurrencies, fees, and licensing requirements.

On May 14th, 20 18 the Thailand SEC took charge of cryptocurrency regulations with newly approved measures taking effect at the end of June.

The Bangkok Post reported:

“The SEC will allow seven cryptocurrencies, used for initial coin offerings (ICOs), to be traded as trading pairs. They are Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum Classic, Litecoin, Ripple, and Stellar.”

The seven approved tokens do not conceal transactions, a significant issue for many governments. All market participants involved in digital asset transactions must register with the SEC within 90 days of the effective date and be approved by the Finance Ministry. This includes digital exchanges, brokers and dealers, and ICO issuers.

Fees

In order for businesses to be registered in Thailand and conduct digital asset trades, they must pay a fee of 5 million baht. Digital asset dealers will be charged 2 million baht, and brokerage firms a fee of 2.5 million baht. The annua l fee for digital exchanges is 0.002% of trading volume, with a minimum fee capped at 500,000 and max at 20 million.

Brokerage firms have smaller fees at 0.001% of trading volume with a minimum fee of 250,000 baht and a maximum of 5 million. Digital Exchange operators have until August 14th, 2018 to apply for their licenses.

ICO Stipulations

To gain SEC approval, token issuers must define and identify the tokens issued in the sale. The ICO portals are required to have at least 5 million baht in registered capital and to monitor the ICOs for at least one year.

The Bankok Post reports:

“Sellers of unauthorized digital tokens and those setting up unauthorized seminars to solicit cryptocurrency investment will be fined no more than twice the value of the digital transaction or at least 500,000 baht. They could face a jail term of up to two years.”

ICO Safety Checks

Our mission is to educate our readers on how to identify fraudulent ICO projects and encouraging projects themselves to be more transparent in their marketing and presentation.

We are committed to only listing legitimate ICO projects. We perform an initial safety check on every ICO that submits to be listed and do our best to filter out bad actors from being listed or featured on our site.

Of course, having a stringent background check means that not all projects will be listed. The following set of criteria will be used when determining if a project is worthy of being listed:

  • Founders and team members

  • Website professionalism

  • Whitepaper content

  • Registered company details

While we can take steps to filter out scammy projects, it is ultimately up to the investor to perform due dilligence on any investment being made.

None of the information you read on CryptoSlate should be taken as investment advice. Investing in initial coin offerings should be considered an extremely high-risk activity. Furthermore, CryptoSlate will not endorse any particular ICO and we don't encourage or discourage our users to make ICO investments.

We do encourage our site visitors to read the following post to better educate themselves on identifying scams:
