With its strict investment regulations, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) sure tries to make it difficult for its citizens to invest in ICOs.
The SEC ruled that ICOs, but not crowdselling, offer securities rather than tokens, and thus attempt to restrict investment to accredited investors only. Basically, all ICOs must be registered like IPOs and offered only to these accredited investors in the U.S.
There are workarounds and loopholes, but it can still be inconvenient to invest in ICOs as a U.S. citizen.
If you're from the US, what is your take on the SEC and its regulations? How do you adapt to the investment regulations while still taking advantage of early investment opportunities?
