Via Twitter John McAffee has asked the Securities and Exchange Commission and its Chairman to a TV debate on the question of whether or not all ICOs are securities under American law to hold.
In the past weeks and months, the issue of the classification of the crypto-currencies like Ethereum and all in the framework of ICOs issued Kryptos, an often and hotly-discussed issue. The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has stated that Bitcoin is not a security, but all other crypto-currencies, which were issued as part of an Initial Coin Offerings could be considered as securities, according to American Federal law.
The discussion is certainly also a reason for the currently sideways-moving crypto currency market. The currently unresolved is the question of burdened certainly not only active investors, but certainly also the entry of new institutional investors. The clarification of the question should therefore, if possible, be cleared with the output that not all ICOs are securities within the meaning of U.S. Federal law, as soon as possible.
Similar to John McAffee sees this. The extroverted, British-American computer scientist and pioneer of the ‘ 70s, especially for its virus protection software, has required the SEC to a television debate in order to clarify the question of whether or not all ICOs are securities within the meaning of the American Put, finally.
On Twitter, he writes that he asked the SEC to debate him on CNN. He had debated two years ago with the FBI, as they had exceeded their limits. You, the SEC, have exceeded their limits also.
7 days after his CNN debate with the FBI, the FBI dropped its demand that Apple give you a Backdoor ready to access data from an Apple device. He promises that, if the SEC accepts the offer, they will cease to insist that all ICOs are securities.
What would he say in a debate with the SEC, is currently still completely unclear. We would hear it but very fond of and would be delighted if the debate is concluded. Currently, the debate around the issue of the SEC is determined and alone. A challenge, like John McAffee in the main stream media, certainly could create and contribute a different perspective on things.
Thus, the debate is concluded, he calls his Followers to the SEC and its Chairman, Jay Clayton with E-to fill in emails and Voice messages so that the TV debate will take place.
We are eager to see whether the TV-duel is concluded and will inform you if and when there is an appointment.
