The new legislation was enacted to regulate digital asset offerings and businesses undertaking digital-asset-related activities.

"I believe that investors will invest in digital assets instead of stocks in the future". "The investment ratio of ICOs to stock will be on par within two years", he said.

According to a report by ICORatings, a website that publishes independent research about upcoming and launched projects, the entire ICO market has doubled within the a year ago, with projects having already raised $11 billion throughout 2018.

Mr Thuntee said Thailand has updated rules and regulations on the digital asset trade and there is a regulator supervising both trading and ICOs, which could draw a considerable number of investors.
