In August last year, local media reported that the BoT, Thailand’s central bank, was looking into launching a new virtual currency called the Central Bank Digital Currency. This week’s news from the SEC, regarding the ICO portal, will serve to further strengthen the country’s already expanding crypto offer. “We definitely know for sure that there is at least one ICO portal license to be given out in the first quarter of 2019, and the Securities and Exchange Commission will be announcing very soon who is to receive it,” Topp Jirayut Srupsrisopa, Co-Founder and CEO of recently licensed exchange Bitkub, told Asia Times.
“With this landmark move, the digital asset ecosystem in Thailand is growing even stronger. It means we are on our way to digitize, and create a better transaction network for the entire world, with Thailand at the center – and this is whether it is for a currency, asset or anything of value. “The market has high potential to exceed the traditional stock exchange industry, as more type of assets can be digitized and traded in the same manner as digital stocks,” added Topp. Coin spectator is an automated news aggregation service.
