DeversiFi Assist EU in Digital Asset Regulations

DeversiFi Assist EU in Digital Asset Regulations

After re-branding from Ethfinex officially earlier this month, DeversiFi has flown to Brussels in order to assist a new EU Commission division which focuses on the regulations to involve crypto assets and blockchain .

They took aboard this role due to their being members of the blockchain advocacy, education and communications organisation, DAIA (Digital Asset Industry Association), described by the platform as the “Voice of The Global Digital Assets Industry”.

They met up with a division of the EU, known as the Directorate General of Communications, Networks, Content and Technology, which strives to build on their existing knowledge of the blockchain industry, how it functions and how they can better regulate it.

Why Now?

These discussions following what has been described as “Cambrian Explosion”. Whereby, the expansion of crypto firms and technologies has expanded at a rapid rate over the last couple of years. This has drawn the attention of countless big-names in the business and financial world, not to mention, whole governments, such as a Germany, Switzerland and much further afield too.

 Naturally, the EU are also one major organisation looking to understand better how it works, and who better to hear it from than the horse’s mouths itself. Thus, the meeting took place between DeversiFi, as well as a series of other blockchain and crypto focused organisations. Ultimately, with the goal to seek create “crypto-friendly regulatory frameworks that serve to encourage and not hamper growth.”

What Was Discussed?

Ultimately, Deversifi has outlined three main key talking points which are as follows:

  • The primary goal was to create an attractive environment for businesses, giving reasons for them to remain in EU jurisdiction
  • Discussed latest policy issues around implementation of FATF standards and AML risks for blockchain/DeFi businesses
  • The professionalisation of the sector through appropriate regulatory standards that are sensitive to the features of the underlying technology and the future potential of the asset class

Plus, much more!

Just the Beginning

However, it is expected that this is just to be the beginning of future discussions and conferences surround the world. Not to mention a whole new era in the Ethfinex story, as they progress to on and become their own autonomous exchange platform.
