Israel’s regulators have been keeping pace with the evolving blockchain and cryptocurrency landscape. Thus, in Israel cryptocurrencies are in fact included in the legal field. In addition, the authorities have intentions to protect the interests of investors and entrepreneurs by controlling the ICO. To do so, the ISA (Israel’s national securities regulator) has created a special committee aimed at finding out whether the securities legislation is suitable for ICO regulation.
