Europe: UK Regulation of Cryptoassets – Another Glimpse But Still None the Wiser
By Kai Zhang and Philip Morgan
On 1 February, the UK Government published another consultation paper on the proposed regulation of business relating to cryptoassets in the UK. This is to seek views (by 30 April 2023) on the overall approach and policy direction, and includes a call for evidence to gather more pertinent information on decentralised finance. As such, the consultation does not contain details on any specific proposed rules. For example, the proposed cryptoasset-related regulated activities described in the consultation paper are stated to be illustrative of the sorts of activities the Government intends to regulate, rather than specific proposals.
