ICOs: the AMF invites project initiators to respond to a questionnaire
The Autorité des Marchés Financiers is sending a questionnaire to French ICO project initiators to measure the impact of these fundraising transactions on the financing of the economy.
Gathering data on ICO methods
When it launched its public consultation on the various ICO framework options in the fall of 2017, the Autorité des Marchés Financiers also unveiled a research and support programme known as UNICORN (Universal Node to ICO Research & Network). As such, the AMF met with more than 70 ICO project initiators.
To measure the impact of these fundraising transactions on the financing of the economy and to gain some perspective on the business models used by French ICO issuers, the AMF is sending out a questionnaire to project initiators whose ICOs have already been held or are planned for the near future.
Advancing academic knowledge of ICOs
The aim of this short questionnaire is to gather data on the methods used for ICOs and on their investors, on a voluntary basis. The data will be treated confidentially and will be used only for the purpose of presenting the French ICO ecosystem on an aggregate basis. This survey will help improve academic knowledge of the ICO financing model. It will also be a factor in the AMF's discussions around the implications of the Pacte bill.
Any questions about this questionnaire should be addressed to a.barrat(at)amf-france.org or c.lemoign(at)amf-france.org.
