Digital finance: Commission welcomes political agreements on milestone regulatory framework for crypto-assets

The European Commission has welcomed the political agreement reached between the European Parliament and the Council on its proposal for a Regulation on markets in crypto-assets (“MiCA”) which aims to protect consumers against some of the risks associated with the investment in crypto-assets, and help them avoid fraudulent schemes. The Commission also welcomed the political agreement on its proposal to amend the Transfer of Funds Regulation (TFR). Commissioner Mairead McGuinness said: "Together, these proposals will bring crypto markets into the regulated space and address risks related to consumer protection, market integrity, financial stability, and financial crime. At the same time, MiCA will bring legal certainty for market participants and promote innovation in the single market with a new EU passport for crypto service providers."
