    The Commission has also published a notice warning of email phishing with fraudulent use of the name of Banca d'Italia and CONSOB. In particular, the Commission notes that it has received reports of phishing attempts performed by sending emails to banks and financial institutions that appear to have come from the email addresses of prominent figures of Banca d'Italia, some of which contain the name of CONSOB in the subject line. The emails use generic work references with invites to respond to the sender.

    In this regard the Commission warns that the sender, the subject or the text of the message unduly refer to Banca d'Italia and/or CONSOB. The episode has been reported to the competent authorities and CONSOB reserves the right to undertake any further actions to protect its image.

    The French supervisory authority (Authorité des Marchés Financiers - AMF) has updated the list of websites offering trading of binary options without the required authorisations with the following:

    • www.capitaldeposit.net;
       
    • www.emfiplacesecurity.com;
       
    • www.xfrfinancial.com.

    The full list is published on the AMF website, at the following address: http://www.amf-france.org.

    Furthermore, in consideration of the rapid appreciation of the value of bitcoin in recent weeks and its volatility, the French authority (AMF) issues a reminder of the risks associated with investment in these speculative assets.

    Bitcoin is one of the speculative resources, at times mistakenly called virtual "currencies" or "crypto-currencies", currently in existence throughout the world. It is traded online and does not exist as a physical coin or bank note. Similarly to other assets of this kind, bitcoin operates on a cryptographic protocol and is decentralised, with transactions registered in a publicly distributed ledger, commonly known as blockchain.

    The purchase/sale and investment in bitcoin currently occurs outside of any regulated market. Investors are therefore exposed to a high loss risk in the event of a downward correction and do not benefit from any guarantees or protection of the capital invested.

    Bitcoins are not considered financial instruments and therefore do not fall within the direct supervisory scope of the AMF. They cannot be classified as currency or considered as a means of payment in the legal sense of the term, therefore they are not subject to the regulatory framework for means of payment.

    The French authority emphasises that the technological environment blockchain may provide many opportunities in terms of use for companies and are sources of innovation; however, in consideration of the volatility of bitcoins and the absence of specific regulations, the AMF recommends extreme caution when investing in these assets.

    The supervisory authorities of the United Kingdom (Financial Conduct Authority - FCA), Switzerland (Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority - FINMA), Sweden (Finansinspektionen), Spain (Comisión Nacional del Mercado de Valores - CNMV), Luxembourg (Commission de Surveillance du Secteur Financier - CSSF), Holland (Netherlands Authority for the Financial Markets - AFM), Hong Kong (Securities and Futures Commission - SFC), Australia (Australian Securities and Investments Commission - ASIC),
