Markets in Crypto-Assets Law (MiCa) 

The EU member states recently agreed on a landmark crypto law that is set to be implemented in 2023. It is one of the world’s first crypto related regulatory framework. 

MiCA is been developed to provide greater protection to European customers across the crypto industry.  The regulatory framework will cover issuers of unbacked crypto assets, stablecoins, trading platforms and wallets where crypto assets are being held by customers.

A spokesperson for Revolut told AltFi, “We welcome the EU-wide regulation and wholeheartedly embrace the European Parliament’s clear intention to support innovation whilst requiring strong customer protection measures to prevent any type of market abuse.”
