Initial Coin Offerings still remain very popular and more projects are hitting the market. As the cryptocurrency community keeps growing and expanding, a number of countries look to be loosening once-tight restrictions and appear to be more comfortable with virtual currency trading and ICOs.

Thailand’s Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is set to introduce new licensing rules on July 16th that will permit ICOs to operate inside of a regulated environment. Companies will be able to file an application with the SEC and then be able to conduct business if approved.

The announcement comes after many months of hearings and legislative debates about ICOs and cryptocurrency. SEC Secretary-General Rapee Sucharitakul says the agency welcomes requests from ICOs and wants companies to speak with the SEC to make sure application requirements are met.

Regulators in South Korea also seem to be changing their minds about cryptocurrency. The nation’s Financial Services Commissions (FSC) has revised guidelines related to virtual currency exchange operators. Authorities are trying to get the country in line with policies other G20 nations have.

A lawmaker in the country also said legislators are trying to craft a bill to remove the current ban on ICOs. South Korea’s Ministry of Strategy and Finance is said to be in talks with the National Tax Agency to figure out how to tax virtual currencies.

A growing number leaders in government and in business are noticing continued interest in ICOs and cryptocurrencies. A large number of legitimate ICOs continue to hit the market on a regular basis as more and more people are turning to blockchain technology in order to make a positive impact in various industries.
