Unregulated nature of the ICOs leaves a misleading impression of the domain being a Wild Wild West where anything goes. That is, however, a gross misunderstanding. Changing regulatory landscape can potentially erode the value proposals inherent in the ICO thus exposing investors to financial losses. ICO founders are also at the reputational risk of not having contextualised their ICOs in the regulatory environment, and whether intentionally or not, but misleading their investors. With a background in accounting, statutory audit, corporate administration, law and international tax regulation and policy, Julia is an expert in assessing long-term validity and sustainability of the ICO proposals from the perspective of their compatibility with present as well as likely future domestic and international regulatory infrastructures.
