ASIC appeals Finder Wallet decision

ASIC has appealed the Federal Court’s decision to dismiss ASIC’s proceedings against Finder Wallet Pty Ltd for allegedly providing unlicensed financial services, breaching product disclosure requirements and failing to comply with design and distribution obligations in relation to its crypto-asset related product ‘Finder Earn’.

ASIC had alleged that the Finder Earn product was a debenture. The Federal Court disagreed and dismissed ASIC’s proceedings on 14 March 2024.

ASIC has appealed this decision because it is concerned that the Finder Earn product was offered without the appropriate licence or authorisation and therefore without the benefit of important consumer protections.

The appeal will be heard by the Full Federal Court on a date to be determined.
