Policy Work

We work with policymakers, academics and our member companies to develop a European regulatory framework to support and promote blockchain-based innovation.

Topics we are actively following include the proposed EU Regulation on Markets in Crypto-Assets (MiCA), the creation of central bank digital currencies (CBDCs) such as a digital Euro, the proposed anti-money laundering review (AML VI), digital assets taxation, the EU Data Strategy, the forthcoming EU legislative proposal on artificial intelligence (AI), and emerging discussions on Decentralised Finance (DeFi) and self-sovereign identity (SSI).
