Louis Roy, Assurance Partner and Blockchain Technology Leader at Catallaxy, a subsidiary of the firm, recently contributed to an article with The Canadian Press to discuss Canadian securities regulators’ growing interest in cryptocurrencies.
As mentioned in the article, Louis Roy is not surprised by the regulators’ attention to cryptocurrencies. He goes on to explain: “With initial coin offerings (ICO), in nine out of ten cases, you’ll see just about anything. We firmly believe in the blockchain. What’s unfortunate with ICOs is the scandals that generate bad press. For both investors and companies that want to proceed with an initial offering, prudence is the way to go.”
The more currencies in circulation, the more we can expect regulators to take an interest. To learn more about cryptocurrencies and their impact on the securities markets, read the Canadian Press article in La Presse or Le Droit (in French only).
