Cryptocurrency Regulation

Offering products or services related to cryptocurrencies may require in most jurisdictions compliance with anti-money laundering provisions and/or licence requirements.

In order to avoid enforcement actions of regulators and to mitigate legal implications and reputational damage, possible regulatory requirements have to be assessed prior to entering the market. While the specific requirements may depend on the specific business model, type of target customer segments and relevant jurisdictions, experts such as regulatory lawyers may provide the necessary regulatory and legal assistance for cryptocurrency start-ups and incumbent entities.

 

Regulatory Technology (RegTech)

Meeting regulatory compliance is not only a requirement for products and services related to cryptocurrencies. Increasing the effectiveness and the efficiency of compliance are main objectives of the use of RegTech.
