On May 13th, Valerie Szczepanik, Digital Assets and Innovation Consultant of the US Securities Regulatory Commission, expressed his position on the first exchange (IEO).
Valerie Szczepanik said that because the platforms that attempt to list and charge IEOs are likely to engage in brokerage activities, there may be barriers to their regulation.
She said, "If they have US issuers or US buyers, or if they do business in the US market and they don't register, they will find themselves in trouble in the US."
She also talked about cryptocurrency broker TokenLot. Valerie Szczepanik said, “TokenLot is a platform to assist buyers in participating in the ICO. In this case, the regulator has taken enforcement action against the platform to participate in the sale as an unregistered broker dealer, violating the Registration regulations."
