SEC works with Google to reinforce crypto transactions in the Philippines

Posted by

During the pandemic, it has been observed that several entities have taken advantage of the digital technology to influence the public to invest in a number of offerings including cryptocurrency.

In accordance with the partnership between the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and tech giant Google, cryptocurrency exchanges and wallets targeting the Philippine audience will need to present to Google the evidence of their registration or license to operate in the country beginning July 7. This is to ensure regulatory compliance from entities doing business online, particularly the Philippine market where cryptocurrency’s popularity is increasing.

“We believe the new policy can reduce the number of Filipinos falling prey to unregistered investment schemes online, who are usually victims of aggressive online advertising and intrusive tactics that make them believe in products that are often too good to be true,” SEC Chairperson Emilio Aquino said. He also mentioned that the continuing partnership with Google would help the SEC fulfill its mandate as registrar and overseer of the Philippine corporate sector, as well as protector of the investing public, in the digital age.

The new requirement will reinforce Google’s existing policy which calls for all advertisers to conform with local laws for any target area of advertisements. Appropriate actions will be taken to address any violations made.

Through investor protection and financial literacy campaigns online, SEC seeks to educate the public on legitimate investment options.
