The new rules, which took effect this week, require crypto operators to display clear risk warnings on ads and prohibit the inclusion of false or exaggerated information about companies.
Tougher rules governing crypto advertising in Thailand came into effect on Thursday, according to an official notice from the country’s securities regulator.
- The new restrictions prohibit the inclusion of false or exaggerated information about crypto companies, such as inflated user numbers, and include a requirement to add clear risk warnings about investing in crypto .
- The Thai Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) amended existing regulations after noting that many ads lacked warnings about risks associated with cryptocurrencies and that some showed only “positive information.”
- The new regulations apply to all new crypto ads that market to local users. Existing advertisements must be revised within 30 days of the publication of the notice, according to the SEC.
