Are ICOs securities ?

Jan 5, 2018 1:31:21 PM / by HiP

There is some debate as to whether ICOs are securities.

While ICOs stress the importance that the tokens that they sell are not equity shares, the SEC (Security and Enterprise Commission) is not entirely convinced that they shouldn’t be treated as such. Regulations and rules regarding ICOs look set to be ironed out over the next year (and perhaps beyond), but for now, ICOs in most countries are not seen as securities.
