Blockchain Advisory is pleased to announce the preparation of a report outlining the various regulatory regimes on crypto-assets across the EU and EEA.

This study has been conducted in order to highlight the salient features and different approaches adopted by different jurisdictions, ranging from light-touch models to full licensing systems. 

 
It is evident, with the increased level of regulation, that interest in the DLT and crypto-assets space is increasing at a rapid pace, potentially paving the way for mainstream adoption and emancipation of the industry itself.

While regulation of the technology per se is neither ideal nor possible, identifiable service providers should be subject to regulatory oversight.

Malta is proud to be the first EU member state to introduce a holistic regulatory framework for this industry and is open to cooperation with other jurisdictions adopting a similar regulatory approach.

We at Blockchain Advisory remain intent on pursuing cutting edge developments in this industry, with our motto being very simple: Driving Legislation in Technology.
