Both the EU and the UK have announced the introduction of new legal frameworks for the provision of crypto-asset activities. The EU's Markets in Crypto-assets Regulation (MiCA) in particular is due to come into force this year, with parts of it applying from 2024. The UK's proposed measures, aimed at mitigating specific risks posed by crypto firms, are under consultation until 30th April 2023.

In this session, lawyers from our European and UK regulatory teams discuss the various ways that crypto firms can prepare for this new regulated environment, including:

  • understanding how your products, services or token offering(s) might be in-scope of these new regimes;
  • devising a licensing strategy for your key markets; and
  • anticipating future guidance from competent authorities.
