Regulation is very much on the agenda for the global digital assets market, which now stands at approximately US$1.1 trillion in value. The approach taken so far by regulators has differed from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, but momentum appears to be building. IOSCO, the umbrella group for global market regulators, has recently released a set of guidelines for authorities to toughen standards and has called for them to “push ahead” with adopting legal standards, frameworks and regulation as quickly as possible despite differences in approach. The EU, the US and the UK are adopting their own measures but at different speeds. So what does this mean for the markets affected? How to plan now in the face of emerging and potentially disparate developments?
