“Investing in Crypto Assets” 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 (Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin & Ripple). The initiative is supported by the Capital Market Development Fund (CMDF).

The program states: One-year since the Securities Commission regulated this space, 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. And with the increasing involvement of institutional investors in crypto assets, this could present itself as a watershed moment for retail investors.
