A Possibility that ICOs could be Limited: states Compliance Trilemma Study

Initial Coin Offering which is abbreviated as ICO will never be out of action! Well, Bitcoin has brought fire to the news reports and now latest to feed news with something to show as proof is ICO aka the Initial Coin Offerings. Read on to know what this study reveals.

Compliance Trilemma being Faced by Initial Coin Offering
Over a time period of 6 months, a team ran investigations over ICO Space. This team had been funded by not only the Government of Canada but also by the University of British Columbia.
North America along with a few other countries came under the radar for this research and this study found out that most of the people (or at least the ones who were interviewed for this study) felt: ICO issuers have been facing a kind of ‘trilemma’!

What is Compliance?
Before we go ahead with a detailed report of trilemma, let us understand basics of compliance: that turns out to be: Regulations in Home Jurisdiction of not only the Investor but also the Issuer.

Compliance Trilemma
Trilemma, occurs when two out of the three objectives could be only addressed at a particular point of time. These are none other than ‘to reach distributed pool of the investors’ with other one being ‘have a complaint offering’. One more interesting fact is: these have to be in a cost-effective mode only.
An individual should understand a simple fact here which is: ‘broadly distributed pool of investors’ is the most benefited lot from ICO; it is according to the funding mechanism. The more investor pool becomes distributed the better, as cost of complying with that of ‘financial regulators’ grows.
In case this does not happen then risk of non-compliance rises resulting in nothing else but trilemma: wherein you either compromise on all three goals or stay happy with two of them.

Approaches available to ICO Issuers
There are three kinds of approaches that ICO issuers can make use of, below you find detailed list of these approaches:
Approach 1: Maverick ICO
As per this option, one can ignore compliance to maximize ICO reach besides cost effectiveness. There is huge risk involved here due to regulatory enforcement.
Approach 2: Hybrid ICO
There is another approach that results in compromise(s) on 3 dimensions; happens when issuing in select markets. Due to such a scenario, there would be compliance plus investor scope besides bounded cost effectiveness.
Approach 3: Private ICO
Third approach solely speaks about accredited as well as institutional investors. This happens only after there is a sacrifice in distribution. There is a plus point here because cost effectiveness is not to be affected but in ‘secondary market trading control’ there can be challenges.
Approach 4: No ICO
Individuals who opted for this approach felt better at all ends as they chose regulatory authority over approaches.

45 interviewees gave in their views on compliance trilemma and most of them thought clarifications on regulations would be helpful.

Bitcoin Crypto Basket ETP Has $400,000 in First Week’s Trading at SIX Swiss Exchange
Amun had recently launched Bitcoin ETP or the Bitcoin Exchange Traded Product on SIX Swiss Exchange, which is based in Zurich, Switzerland. For your information, SIX Swiss Exchange is one of the leading Swiss Stock Exchange for Trading of not only shares but also bonds, investment funds and exchange traded funds apart from similar other stuff.

$400,000 Collected from Trading Bitcoin ETP
Of course, in a week’s time from the minute Bitcoin ETP began its trade on SIX Swiss Exchange, it has amassed about $400,000 in trading. All this could happen post launch of it by Amun. It comes as a surprise because the collection as per reports has crossed even the turnover that usually comes from gold, oil or silver!
But one cannot be assured of the fact that this turnover would remain the same or no in the longer run. This Exchange Traded Product available at Swiss Exchange has Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple and Litecoin. Bitcoin Cash could not make it there due to Bitcoin’s hard fork that affected almost whole of cryptocurrency world out there making investors go berserk to a certain extent regarding what would be the next step.

Other Aspects to be Known about ETP or Exchange Traded Product
It was Amun AG’s idea to bring Exchange Traded Product aka ETP in to focus however, this is not the only aspect that has seen the daylight as there are other things as well which will be going to be a part of the whole set up soon.
One of them being ‘blockchain technology’; as Amun plans to have blockchain technique fit in with the backend processes. In addition to this, Swiss Exchange Traded Product is different from that of ETF seen in cryptocurrency. (Remember ETF in cryptocurrency is nothing but Exchange Traded Funds).

What is Swiss ETP?
ETP, like earlier stated is short form for Exchange Traded Product, it does not depend on futures.
In Hany Rashwan, CEO and Co-Founder of Amun AG words: “Whenever any investor is going to purchase it then corresponding amount of actual crypto assets is purchased besides being stored with qualified custodian.”

World’s First Multi Crypto Based ETP at Swiss Exchange!
Yes, it is going to be first of its kind in the world to have ETP/ Exchange Traded Product on SIX Swiss Exchange, again principal Stock Exchange in Switzerland! Interestingly this ETP is nothing short of a multi-crypto ETP at the global level and shall be listed under the Index HODL.

As reported earlier, there were five of the major cryptocurrencies listed here, namely: Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Bitcoin Cash (BCH) [already removed post hard fork], Litecoin (LTC) and Ripple (XRP).
And within a short span of time, ‘Bitcoin Crypto Basket ETP’ has already seen a surge of $400,000 in trading! When such a figure is indicated in the first week itself then it is to see what would happen in near future especially when Bitcoin ETP is in question.
A wait and watch policy, may be?!?
