Which financial supervisory regulations apply to crypto assets and how are the various crypto models to be correctly classified from a supervisory point of view?

The regulation of crypto assets is increasing and becoming further unified. Depending on the features of the tokens, issuers and crypto service providers may therefore be subject to regulatory licensing requirements. However, the increasing regulation of crypto assets in Germany and the EU is also associated with growing legal certainty, making market entry to one of the world’s biggest market economies particularly attractive for FinTechs from all over the world.

Our webinar will provide an overview of the current regulatory landscape in Germany for crypto assets and crypto service providers accompanied by a look at the European level, where a unified body of legislation for the regulation of crypto assets is already on the horizon.

In particular, the webinar will address the following topics:

  • Regulatory classification of crypto assets in Germany.
  • Licensing requirements in connection with crypto assets and crypto services.
  • Overview on regulatory requirements for institutions regulated in Germany.
  • Draft European crypto regulation, in particular Markets in Crypto-Assets Regulation ("MiCAR").
  • Passporting of licenses within the EU.
