SEC Outlines Regulatory Agenda, Exempt Securities Top the List Including Reg D, Accredited Investor Definition

Published

on

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has outlined its regulatory agenda for the coming months and at the top of the list are exempt securities that include Reg D and perhaps other exemptions such as Reg CF and Reg A+. Of note, is that the accredited investor definition may receive a change as well.

In a statement published on Friday, SEC Chairman Gary Gensler stated:

“To meet our mission of protecting investors, maintaining fair, orderly, and efficient markets, and facilitating capital formation, the SEC has a lot of regulatory work ahead of us. I look forward to collaborating with my fellow commissioners and the dedicated staff to propose and finalize rules that will strengthen our markets, increase transparency, and safeguard investors.”

The list includes both short and long-term regulatory actions that administrative agencies plan to take.

Exempt offerings will garner additional scrutiny. According to the abstract:

“The Division [of Corporate Finance] is considering recommending that the Commission seek public comment on ways to further update the Commission’s rules related to exempt offerings to more effectively promote investor protection, including updating the financial thresholds in the accredited investor definition, ensuring appropriate access to and enhancing the information available regarding Regulation D offerings, and amendments related to the integration framework for registered and exempt offerings.”

Reg D is the top securities exemption when it comes to early-stage ventures raising growth capital. The top two iterations are Reg D 506b and Reg D 506c – with the latter allowing for general solicitation or online capital formation (crowdfunding). Any changes made could impact access to capital for promising young firms as the exemption in its current iteration has been highly effective.

The definition of an accredited investor has long been criticized by many Fintech industry insiders as too restrictive, denying opportunity to all investors. Yet there are some policymakers that believe the current wealth metrics need to be made more stringent, thus limiting access to investors even more. It is not immediately clear, what exactly, the commission has in store for any change.

Another regulatory area of note is the topic of “Gamification” something some digital investment platforms, such as Robinhood, have received criticism and encouraging trading – perhaps to the detriment of investors.

The abstract states:

“The Division [of Trading and Markets] is considering recommending that the Commission seek public comment on potential rules related to gamification, behavioral prompts, predictive analytics, and differential marketing.”

Special Purpose Acquisition Companies (SPACs), or blank check firms, have made the list as well as this sector of finance has boomed in the past year. As SPACs have increased, both regulators and elected officials have focused more of their attention on the method of taking a private firm public.

The SEC says:

“The Division [of Corporate Finance] is considering recommending that the Commission propose rule amendments related to special purpose acquisition companies.”

While any outcome is pure speculation at this time, the progress made during the last administration in areas such as access to capital and improvements to the exempt securities ecosystem could be at risk. Time will tell.

SEC Commissioner Hester Peirce, an individual well known for her support of innovation and smaller firms, Tweeted that the list may not be her “ideal list” but she is ready to work with her peers on the Commission.

There is plenty more on the SEC regulatory agenda.

For anyone who is either getting ready to watch the Euro 2020 matches, enjoys fantasy football, or is passionate about cryptocurrency and the exciting world of NFTs, there could be no better entertainment than FootballCoin this summer.

Euro 2020 Fantasy is a free-to-play game with NFT player cards and includes every match from the tournament in the FootballCoin daily contests. Players can register and play for free for the chance to win prizes in the platform’s native XFC coin or convert those prizes into fiat currency.

NFT player cards and XFC coin

NFT player packs containing NFT player (and stadium) cards can be purchased in the game for as little as $12.

NFT Cards can be bought, sold, and even loaned (just like real players) on the vibrant FootballCoin marketplace. In addition, all fantasy cards are visible and registered on the blockchain, giving FootballCoin NFTs real utility to earn more XFC coins.

XFC is the game’s native cryptocurrency, but it is also tradable against fiat on crypto trading platforms. Most of the XFC trading volume takes place on centralized exchangeWhitebit. XFC can also be purchased safely on the FootballCoin platform with a credit card. 

How to play FootballCoin

Interested parties can enter the fantasy football contests by registering for free on theFootballCoin signup page. After signup, users simply select a contest to compete in and then create a draft of 11 players + five subs from a roster of real footballers.

XFC winnings are determined by how well the players perform in their real games. Real data determines this to score player performances. Each Euro 2020 game allows users to select a new draft composed of players participating in the competition. Choose the ultimate fantasy football draft and win.

FootballCoin: Changing the NFT game

2021 has seen a rise in sports-related NFT and blockchain projects. For example, NBA Top Shot and other football NFT sports projects have taken off, and FootballCoin is set to be the next NFT sports platform to explode in the space.

While NBA Top Shot focuses on collectibility in typical sports card fashion, FootballCoin allows users to not only build their sports card collection but become “managers” and use their cards to compete each day for rewards and prizes in real football fantasy contests.

Other fantasy football games using cryptocurrency to buy NFTs sometimes charge hundreds or thousands of dollars and also have other limiting aspects to the fantasy game experience.

By contrast, FootballCoin has been using NFTs as the central pillar of the concept for over four years, withplayer card NFTs starting at a price of around $3 and no additional fees for selling, trading, or leasing.

Interested parties can sign up for free at FootballCoin and start collecting NFT cards for the EURO 2020 Fantasy game.

Elon Musk lays out when Tesla will begin accepting Bitcoin payments

Musk responded to a Cointelegraph tweet about Sygnia CEO Magda Wierzycka calling for the SEC to investigate him over alleged Bitcoin price manipulation.

Published

on

Tesla CEO Elon Musk says his electric-vehicle company will start accepting Bitcoin (BTC) payments once there’s confirmation that miners are utilizing clean energy, offering a glimmer of hope that the FUD surrounding digital assets could soon subside. 

Musk responded to a Cointelegraph tweet about recent accusations from Sygnia CEO Magda Wierzycka, who called on the United States Securities and Exchange Commission to investigate the billionaire for allegedly manipulating Bitcoin’s price.

According to Wierzycka, Musk knowingly pumped the price of Bitcoin only to sell a “big part of his exposure at the peak.”

“This is inaccurate,” Musk said in a Sunday response. “Tesla only sold ~10% of holdings to confirm BTC could be liquidated easily without moving [the] market.”

As Cointelegraph reported, Musk acknowledged in April that Tesla had sold a portion of its Bitcoin holdings to prove its liquidity as an alternative to cash. Just one month earlier, the billionaire confirmed that Tesla added $1.5 billion worth of BTC to its balance sheet and would begin accepting the virtual asset as payment for its vehicles. 

However, Tesla’s embrace of Bitcoin-as-a-payment was short-lived after Musk flagged concerns over the cryptocurrency’s energy usage. On May 12, Musk tweeted that his company would no longer accept Bitcoin payments due to the network’s “increasingly rapid use of fossil fuels…”

Musk’s tweet coincided with a slew of negative headlines about Bitcoin’s energy usage, China’s intent to ban Bitcoin mining and an overextended crypto rally that was showing signs of weakness. The news cycle helped trigger one of Bitcoin’s most painful episodes, culminating in a 54% drop between mid-April and mid-May.

On Sunday, Musk laid the groundwork for when Tesla will once again accept Bitcoin payments:  

“When there’s confirmation of reasonable (~50%) clean energy usage by miners with positive future trend, Tesla will resume allowing Bitcoin transactions.”

As Cointelegraph reported, Musk was recently invited to a meeting of Bitcoin miners by MicroStrategy CEO Michael Saylor. The Bitcoin Mining Council, a voluntary, self-regulating industry body, emerged from the meeting with a mandate to use more renewable energy and promot more transparency in the mining process.

Despite all the criticism about Bitcoin mining, it’s estimated that a strong majority of miners already use alternative energy resources.
