Memes as public policy messaging

Huge investment opportunity don’t miss out. Just joking (we do not touch ICOs): the US Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) have launched their own ICO, the HoweyCoin. The SEC set up a website,, that mimics a bogus coin offering to educate investors about what to look for before they invest in a scam. Anyone who clicks on “Buy Coins Now” will be led instead to investor education tools and tips from the SEC and other financial regulators. We liked the Coin Center‘s response: “Memes are the future of public policy messaging”. You may find the bogus ICO launch website here and the SEC press release here.
