Not to mention the names of cryptoprocta, he explained his opinion about the ICO:
When I give you money, and you have to start the thing.. and for it share the profits, saying, “you know what, I will bring you the income” — then we are talking about securities, and we handle it. We adjust the offer of securities and trading in securities.
