The European Commission is about to publish an impact assessment based on the findings of its consultation on possible Crypto Assets Regulation. A Crypto Asset related legislative framework may then be published in the autumn. Lots of banks have responded to this, some with great concern about what the Commission will announce Is the existing legislation (MIFID II and EMD2) fit for purpose or should they be modified? And if so, how?
– Is there a risk of protectionism from the European Commission and a stifling of innovation?
– What now for those currently classed as ‘non-financial instruments’ such as Stablecoins/Libra?
– What are the AML/CFT implications?
