The Qoin Association Council has thoroughly researched and investigated the risks and regulatory environment relating to digital currencies, blockchains and exchanges in Australia. The same will be done for New Zealand, the United Kingdom and every country that the Merchant ecosystem is expanded into.
The council has also directly engaged with ASIC, the regulator in Australia. The Australian Qoin Wallet is a regulated non cash payments product approved as Authorised Representative number 1279598 of Australian Financial Services Licence (AFSL) number 494176. When the merchant ecosystem is expanded into the rest of the world, the Council will engage with country regulators and law firms to get the appropriate guidance.
To fully understand the risks and regulatory environment the Council appointed a leading tier-one law firm to submit legal advice that was used to develop our regulatory roadmap.
The following risks have been identified for any User of the Qoin digital currency and these risks should be considered before acquiring Qoin:
