In this City Wire Asia article, “Experts expect crackdown on digital currencies”, Morrison & Foerster Associate Nick Davies was quoted regarding the Monetary Authority of Singapore’s clarification on the regulation of virtual currencies.

‘For those looking to launch an ICO [initial coin offering] in the sense of an offering to the public – but using virtual currencies instead of shares or bonds, then I think the MAS announcement together with the SEC announcement are beginning to show that there is not a clear path to do that whilst shutting eyes to financial regulation,’ Nick Davies, associate at Morrison & Foerster told Citywire Asia.
