As cryptocurrency continues to attract mainstream attention, hacks and scams are making it hard for crypto to flinch from the word controversy.
And because of the fundamental role being played by crypto exchanges in the overall ecosystem along with its tie-up with conventional finance, we need to understand what it has to do with regulation, how it is done and whether you as a crypto exchange should get in line.
What are the practical implications and the practical benefits for consumers of a crypto business that is regulated and registered with the FCA?
What are some of the challenges of FCA registered crypto companies and what realistically is required to stop those scams from continuing to affect people and continuing to affect those companies that are registered?
Why do you think so few companies have been registered so far?
What reasons do you see would being regulated be considered as fully advantageous?
Are there any alternatives that you see to registrations that will help businesses enter the market quickly at potentially a lesser cost than going through the registration process?
How long it would take to get registered in the UK?
What protections are there for people dealing with crypto exchanges that are registered as opposed to ones that aren’t?
What are some of the risks for companies who are still on the waiting list to being registered?
What do you expect to see in the coming 12 to 18 months? Do you expect to see a lot more companies added to that list? Or are you expecting to see the majority of the companies being removed from that?
