Blockchain technology– the distributed platform that removes intermediaries from the equation and resolves the trust issue – has brought fundamental changes to almost all industries and business models by enabling novel ways of transacting. The technology brought tremendous challenges to established principles, rules, laws, and regulations and has captured the minds of digital innovators, the wider financial industry, regulators, and governments alike who are now facing increasing pressure to support innovation while ensuring that the regulations and policies needed to hold stakeholders accountable for the communities they intend to serve are in place.
Regulators around the world are trying to find out an appropriate approach to regulate Blockchain’s use and applications. Individuals and organizations should assess the related risks and legal challenges. Today, we witness that, different countries are approaching or regulating the use of Blockchain in their own way, i.e. some countries are welcoming, other are cautious, or demonstrate resistance to apply the technology. Regulation, supervision, and global coordination will probably enable Blockchain to become mainstream. To ensure this, we need a harmonized and pro-innovation approach regarding blockchain regulation.
This training course aims to consider the emerging issues in the regulation of Blockchain technology and crypto-assets and examine the potential need for additional or adapted legislation. In this course, participants will understand that the wider the adoption of Blockchain technology across the world, the greater the innovation, which is vital for businesses and societies. Furthermore, the most important developments in relation to regulating the use of Blockchains and crypto-assets shall will be discussed and assessed. The Markets in Crypto-Assets Regulation is a prominent example of a blockchain- and cryptoasset-focused regime introduced at the EU level governing a wide scope of crypto-assets and crypto-asset services. Hence, we will look at pieces of legislation that have already been introduced or are impending (EU and domestic) as well as initiatives, directives, views and positions of global bodies, key jurisdictions, different countries’ regulators and authorities.
