Investor Alert for aGifttoken
Halifax - The Nova Scotia Securities Commission is alerting investors that
aGifttoken (agifttoken.com) is not registered to sell securities in Nova Scotia.
The company and their representatives have an Initial Coin Offering (ICO) that is
available to Nova Scotia residents. aGifttoken claims to be a cryptocurrency to be
used on the aGiftapp platform. It claims to have an office in Bucharest, Romania,
and is targeting investors through its website: aGifttoken.com.
"Always take the time to check registration and understand the risks and costs
involved with your investments, " says Stephanie Atkinson, Acting Director of
Enforcement with the Commission.
The Commission reports that more than 130 new investigations of Initial Coin
Offerings (ICOs) and cryptocurrency-related investment products have been
initiated and 35 enforcement actions completed by provincial and state securities
regulators in Canada and the United States since the beginning of the year as part
of "Operation Cryptosweep, " an initiative of the North American Securities
Administrators Association (NASAA), of which the Commission is a member.
The Commission urges Nova Scotians to exercise extreme caution when dealing
with firms that are not registered in Nova Scotia. It is illegal to solicit investments
in Nova Scotia without registering with the Commission and complying with Nova
Scotia securities laws. To see if a company or person is registered, you can check
the Canadian Securities Administrators' National Registration Search.
