Although the trading volume on Coinmarketcap lists Bitcoin as the first largest cryptocurrency followed by ETH, XRP, EOS, LTC, BCH, USDT, XLM, TRON, BNB and etc..respectively – but the route for SEC Thailand is quite different.

Banned Cryptocurrencies for ICO Investment

Additionally, while SEC finalized the eligible assets, it had also shared the ones that have been presently banned to be considered for ICO investment. Consequent to the reports, Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Ethereum Classic (ETC), Litecoin (LTC) has been removed from the list means that these will not be used to invest in ICO projects.
