Recently, the Vice-president of the EU Commission stated that major changes are coming to the regulation of digital assets in the EU. This brings us to the fact that new cryptocurrency companies will be obligated to conduct their business activities according to this new regulation.
Thus, we will now explore in more detail the meaning of this update for the digital entrepreneurs.
The EU Commission decided to help potential investors and started an e-finance consultation. These and other areas covered by it:
Let’s examine the main objectives of the consultation.
The current legislation has been questioned from the beginning of the cryptocurrency activities in Europe. That is why the Commission will be introducing an individual regime for crypto assets that do not fall under the current regulatory framework.
The stablecoins regulation was also mentioned during the VP’s statement. The point of this remark was the need to separate in regulation the stablecoins issued by big market actors and those issued by smaller fintech companies. The former pose certain systemic risks and the distinction should help limit the dangers.
In the next phase, the Commission is expected to work on the strengthening of the cybersecurity rules. This will be performed with the help of new principles of regulation for the EU’s financial institutions.
To inspect the level of success of the consultation, the Commission will reflect its results in the Digital Strategy that should be issued in the third quarter of 2020.
