There continues to be questions and debate about the regulation of Cryptocurrency sector and given the virtual, international and cross border nature this is an extremely complex topic.
Crypto firms currently have to carefully assess the point at which their business activities put them into the regulatory spotlight. Some find that their wider business activities require FCA regulation, whereas others may invite regulation because of the market kudos and respectability it brings.
This comes against the backdrop of dynamic international regulatory environment. Some jurisdictions are taking draconian action, whereas others, such as Switzerland, Gibraltar and Malta, are actively courting Crypto firms. The UK will be adopting the 5th Money Laundering Directive (5MLD) in 2019 and this will require many Crypto firms to comply with Money Laundering Regulations for the first time. Coupled with this, the UK’s taskforce on the regulation of Crypto assets is due to report in the Autumn.
