The Central Bank of Russia wants to set an annual limit for so-called “unqualified investors” that want to purchase digital assets, local business media giant RBC reported on Tuesday, March 12.
According to the documents obtained by RBC, the bank wants to amend the current draft cryptobill, dubbed “On Digital Financial Assets,” which recently passed a second of three readings in Russia’s parliament, the State Duma.
The central bank’s paper recommends equating investor limits to the ones set in a draft bill on crowdfunding, which is also being reviewed by the Russian parliament. The head of the State Duma’s committee on financial markets Anatoly Aksakov told RBC that the threshold will likely be established at around 600,000 rubles (about $9,100) per year — the same as the yearly investmentlimit in crowdfunding projects.

SEC CHAIRMAN AGREES WITH ANALYSIS THAT SAYS ETHEREUM, SIMILAR CRYPTO ASSETS ARE NOT SECURITIES
Clayton made this revelation in a letter sent to US House Rep. Ted Budd, who had requested that the SEC provide clarity on whether SEC Director of the Division of Corporate Finance William Hinman spoke for the agency when he said that Ethereum was not a security or was merely voicing his own opinion.
While Clayton did not reference Ethereum or any other cryptocurrency by name, he confirmed that he agrees with Hinman’s analysis of what crypto assets fall under the securities classification.
Thailand’s Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is seeking public comments on the proposed rules for data submission by crypto business operators and initial coin offering (ICO) portals.
In May 2018, the Thai government issued a royal decree to regulate the local cryptocurrency markets. Under the law, domestic crypto exchanges, ICO operators, and independent crypto brokers and dealers are required to register with the SEC. Regarding ICOs, the mandate is applied to all token sales, including pre-ICO and private sales. To date, only four cryptocurrency businesses have been granted digital asset business licenses.
In a recent press release, the SEC announced that it is now aiming to promote a clear understanding and a standardized protocol for monitoring and supervision of crypto businesses, and to reduce the necessity for case-by-case data submission.
According to the SEC, cryptocurrency businesses deploy different data types and structures in their business operation, which is why the regulator is proposing draft rules related to preparation and submission of data and information according to specific, standardized formats to facilitate ICO portals, digital asset dealers, brokers and exchanges in this matter while reducing their data submission on a case-by-case basis
