SIDC LAMS

Digital Assets Programme for Investors

This initiative is supported by Capital Market Development Fund (CMDF)

Investing in Crypto Assets (Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin & XRP) with SIDC is the first retail investor focused education programme in Malaysia that aims to educate the masses regarding all they need to know when investing in the four approved crypto assets. One-year since the Securities Commission (SC) Malaysia has paved the way by regulating crypto assets and its market operators (DAXs) in October of 2019, the public is still unknowingly falling prey to schemes and scams. This has been exacerbated by the economic impacts of covid-19. Hence, there is an opportunity to fill this awareness gap amongst the general public when it comes to investing in crypto assets. With the increasing involvement of institutional investors in crypto assets, this could present itself as a watershed moment for retail investors. This programme will debunk myths and present facts to potential investors; most importantly, it will educate them regarding the asset class, to ensure they do not fall prey to fraudsters promising high returns.
