The EU Crypto Initiative aims to shape EU regulation to favour open, permissionless, decentralised applications leveraging blockchain technology.
We believe that the future of finance and monetary economics lies in the growing area of crypto-finance. Global, more transparent, secure, natively digital, we believe this space has the potential to radically advance society, much like the World Wide Web and mobile technologies have over the last 30 years.
Upcoming regulations in Europe would significantly impact the crypto-blockchain industry’s ability to grow, scale, and compete. Should Europe miss this opportunity, it risks facing challenges around sovereignty and foreign market dominance in 10 to 20 years. The next FAANGs will dominate financial markets and the global economy.
- Uphold: Propose amendments to regulatory proposals which support our vision and support European industry actors.
- Educate: Engage MEPs, the European Commission and the European Council (member states) to share and defend our positions.
- Cooperate: Work with other initiatives and industry bodies to amplify shared positions and gain support from lawmakers and the broader private sector.
