Cryptocurrency Trading Regulation — New IOSCO Proposals

“Hi! I’m from the government. I’m here to help.”

The regulatory perimeter regarding crypto-assets continues to expand. The latest move comes from the International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO) which released for comment on 28 May 2019 suggested regulatory oversight standards to govern crypto-asset trading platforms (the “IOSCO CTP Proposals”). Many in the #cryptocurrency sector are likely cringing, if they noticed. Comments are due to IOSCO by 29 July, 2019.
