Since Satoshi Nakamoto simplified the dream for a decentralized form of value and currency exchange in 2008, wave after wave of finance-related innovations has emerged. These innovators, with many taking on the roles and responsibilities of crypto-asset issuers and service providers, have found ways to simplify financial transactions and investments.


The majority of these innovators have built on the blockchain system for a distributed ledger technology (DLT) to do amazing things. As such, rather than only technically inclined people having the best of the provisions of the technology, ordinary people have also benefited greatly. Also, the lack of global regulations on the new system has allowed it to flourish, making overnight millionaires of timely miners and investors.


And while the uptake of cryptos in developed and developing countries grows daily, the uncertainties inherent in the system have caused hesitation in some quarters. The EU (European Union) is one of such hesitant parties.


Despite realizing the opportunities for sustainable growth and development that the system promotes, the EU has been mostly silent on maximizing the offerings of the crypto industry. Until the “Proposal for a Regulation for the European Parliament and of the Council on Markets in Crypto-assets, and amending Directive (EU) 2019/1937,” an initiative that is 167 pages long and consists of 126 articles, came into being.


This article analyzes this framework proposed by the EU in light of what it means, what the various stakeholders of the crypto industry should expect and an overall estimation of who the proposal is good for.


The EU Regulation Proposal: What It Is


The European Commission published the proposal for a regulation of cryptos and their markets on September 24, 2020. However, the proposal was not adopted until November 24, 2021—more than 12 months later.


The EU’s proposed framework for the regulation of crypto-assets and markets is exactly what it says—an initiative to regulate the activities of the cryptos market and exchanges. However, it is not driven by any intention by the EU to control the industry, only to make it legitimate and trustworthy.

Also, the proposal intends to repair fragmentations in the European regulatory framework. This way, the entire region would have one block of regulatory measures rather than multi-varied national measures.


The Motivations for the EU Initiative


The EU used suggestions from the European Banking Authority (EBA) and the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) in order to understand the full range of crypto mechanisms. This way, the conclusions can be as final as possible since it is backed by inclusive research.


What the EU wants to do is implement the full spectrum of its Digital Finance package in the crypto market. Once this is in place, Europe will be able to take full advantage of the offerings of cryptos and other crypto-related stuff without subjecting its citizens and economy to the pitfalls of the industry.


As the document reports, “One of the strategy’s identified priority areas is ensuring that the EU financial services regulatory framework is innovation-friendly and does not pose obstacles to the application of new technologies.” As such, the framework’s motivation can be summarized as the need to:


  • Tokenize traditional financial assets. Thus, cryptos can be integrated into the EU’s business operations framework and regional market.
  • Legalize everything. In this faction, the EU can unify the current crypto operational substructure with current legal frameworks to increase uptake at a continental level.
  • Present a unified regulatory charter across Europe. Thus, there wouldn’t be discrepancies in the EU’s attitude to all things crypto-related.


In short, the framework has four primary objectives:


  1. provide legal certainty,
  2. support innovation,
  3. instill appropriate levels of consumer and investor protection and market integrity, and
  4. ensure financial stability.


The Coverage of the Initiative


The initiative does not cover every form of virtual money and currency. It only takes into consideration crypto-assets and other related assets that are driven by the blockchain distributed ledger technology (DLT). Thus, asset-referenced tokens and e-money tokens are the main punches of the initiative.


Also, the proposal covers two conditions for the operation of the crypto market, particularly for service providers. There is an opt-in option which means that those that want to stay unregulated can remain so. There is also an all-in harmonization option that insists on complete inclusion irrespective of prior plans. The EU insists on the second option.


Furthermore, the proposed regulation places the EBA and ESMA as competent authorities to oversee all activities related to crypto-asset exchanges. Thus, these are the regulatory powers at the forefront that are responsible for implementing the various conditions of the proposal.


The Status Quo of the Crypto Market & Crypto Trading


To understand the core of the proposal, it is expedient to highlight the status quo of the crypto market and the dynamics of its stakeholders and transactions.

Presently, the crypto market is mostly unregulated (which means that there is no central authority supervising it) at least at a global level. By implication, it is an open market where there is a lot of freedom for decision-making.


Also, the extensiveness of the open crypto market means that anybody with sufficient knowledge of blockchains can take advantage of it. As such, there are many coins, protocols, exchange platforms, and more.


While these are the pros of the traditional unregulated crypto market, there are associated cons. Anonymity is a core element of the system, so criminal activity is unavoidable. Hoarding of funds—and whale activity by implication—is also a thing.


What the EU Regulation Proposal Means to Do


What the regulation proposal intends to accomplish is straightforward. It is to bring about harmonization between what cryptos can offer (along with DLT) and the financial obligations of the EU. This is why the legalization of the market and its agents is a leading objective of the proposed framework.

Presented in this manner, the framework has the best interest of crypto stakeholders at heart. For example, payment tokens can be better optimized to “... present opportunities in terms of cheaper, faster and more efficient payments, in particular on a cross-border basis, by limiting the number of intermediaries.”

So, the framework bridges decentralized finance (DeFi) with its centralized alternative (CeFi). Thus, what the EU means to do is

  • Create a framework for the issuance of services related to cryptos,
  • Design a safety net for crypto consumers and investors,
  • Reduce the risks of hacking and systemic abuse,
  • Provide market integrity, and
  • Stabilize the crypto market alongside already existing institutional economic conditions.


What to Expect from the Implementation of the EU Proposal


The crypto market consists of many stakeholders all of whom can be categorized under three classes: crypto-asset issuers and service providers; miners and crypto traders; and investors.


Effect on Providers and Platforms of Crypto Trading


The Good Side of the EU Framework on Crypto Service Providers


  • The security afforded by the framework will let providers better scale their businesses: They will be able to cover more geographical and commercial areas. This will attract more long-term investments and larger capital from corporate bodies.
  • The system is more stable: As such, crypto-asset issuers and service providers will be able to offer better guarantees of returns on investments.
  • Cutbacks on hacking and fraudulent activities: The framework will ensure that blockchains are better protected against criminal activities. So, service providers might not need to spend as much on security protocols.


The Bad Side of the EU Framework on Crypto Service Providers


  • Far less freedom of operation: Crypto-asset providers will be tasked with having registered offices in the EU Member States, for example. Thus, the market will no longer be as open as Nakamoto’s model suggested.
  • Timed licenses: Service providers’ authorization to operate can be withdrawn if they fail to meet certain conditions. This is essentially a noose on the necks of these providers.
  • Greater caution with whitepapers: Whitepapers have to be submitted to authorized powers before publishing. So, service providers can no longer be willy-nilly about their offers.
  • No more surprises: Service providers must report all important information before they can be authorized. They have to include information about the issuer, the project, the underlying technology, the risks associated with joining the network, and more.


Effect on Crypto Investors


The Good Side of the EU Framework on Crypto Investors


  • Assurance of exchange platform’s seriousness: Investors can rest assured knowing that service providers are competent and dedicated to providing the services promised in their whitepaper.
  • Dependable comparison of trading platform’s merits: The portfolios of trading platforms can be compared. The current system does not have this ability since there is no framework that manages to effectively monitor their progress all at once.
  • Even playing field for multi-variable investments: Investors can track their fiat and cryptos in and out of the system without a hassle.
  • Withdrawal rights: Investors can pull out anytime they want. The proposal emphasizes a right of withdrawal without worrying about withdrawal costs or having to give reasons why they are withdrawing.


The Bad Side of the EU Framework on Crypto Investors


  • Limited hoarding capabilities: Crypto investors will not be able to hoard indiscreetly. The system is monitored for any activity that might hurt the majority of crypto users on any platform.
  • Rigid accountability: Crypto investors must report their intention to increase their holding of asset-referenced tokens. And this has to be done in writing. The same for whenever an investor wants to reduce the size of their holding.


Effect on Everyday Crypto Traders


The Good Side of the EU Framework on Crypto Traders


  • True cross-border transactions. Crypto traders can effectively trade across the EU and treat the entire continent as a single block.
  • Tokens and coins are more trustworthy and less volatile (possibly). This is expected since tokens and coins are backed by authorized supervision.
  • Better integration with the system. Crypto traders may not have to worry about false advertising since every authorized issuer of crypto-assets would be liable to the EU regulation.
  • Withdrawal rights: Crypto traders can decide to discontinue their subscription to any trading platform. No incurred costs, no delay, no justification for the move.
  • The system is more user-centric than technology-centric. Everything appears to be in the interest of the consumer. Crypto-related service providers are even tasked with promptly responding to filed complaints.


The Bad Side of the EU Framework on Crypto Traders


  • No anonymity: Crypto traders can no longer trade in secret or use anonymous personas. Instead, the KYC (Know Your Customer) protocol will shield the system from such activities.
  • Seeming relapse in the financial system. It doesn’t look like much has changed. Instead, the financial system appears to have relapsed.
  • Transaction dynamics might deflate: Legislative inclusions might slow down transactions. This is a possibility especially when there are contentions over transactions and the service provider has to participate or cover customer losses.


Overall Conclusion: Is It Good or Bad?


There are clear pros to the proposed EU framework. For one, banks can now work with the crypto industry without fear. The risks associated with anonymity (which is an integral component of the current crypto market) are also reduced substantially.


Also, different crypto regulatory regimes and frameworks across Europe make it difficult to truly utilize the opportunities afforded by crypto applications in the region. A unified framework is good.


Moreover, the framework is great for consumers (that is, crypto investors and traders). Protection right is up there with greater security as the system looks to be customer-centric. Also, market manipulation might become a thing of the past due to the lid that the initiative places on insider information.


However, there are also clear cons. For one, there are many restrictions for the issuers of crypto-assets and crypto-related service providers. These would have to consider every offer to the customer as being liable to cancellation by the EU regulation.


Also, the regulation appears to be true in every sense of the word. This might likely cut down the number of crypto issuers and project developers since they do not all have fleshed-out ideas (and will likely be penalized for it).


Furthermore, the EU framework will ensure that there are fewer surprises now that insider information has to be leaked (in a sense) by the service providers themselves. This should have no significant effect on innovation, but there is no guarantee that it won’t.


Overall, the EU framework is as promised: a great development for crypto users/consumers. But it is not so great for crypto service providers. Also, the proposed regulations are strong and can be interpreted as having upended the core quality of the blockchain revolution.

MiCA Unveiled: Guide to Licensing and Compliance for Crypto Companies

In a fragmented regulatory landscape, the Markets in Crypto-Assets (MiCA) regulation emerges as a beacon of standardization and security. The European Union's pioneering approach to crypto regulation, embodied in MiCA, sets a precedent for the global crypto market. MiCA isn't just another regulatory hurdle; it's a transformative framework that promises to bring clarity and confidence to both crypto businesses and investors. As we delve into this comprehensive guide, we'll uncover the intricacies of MiCA, illuminating the path for businesses striving to navigate this new regulatory landscape.

Understanding the Scope of MiCA

The MiCA crypto regulation is tailored to encompass the broad spectrum of crypto-assets, excluding only those classified as financial instruments under existing EU legislation. This inclusivity marks MiCA as a comprehensive framework, addressing a range of assets from stablecoins to utility tokens. The regulation aims to establish uniform rules across all EU member states, effectively eliminating the regulatory patchwork that currently complicates the crypto market.

The heart of MiCA revolves around consumer protection, market integrity, and financial stability. By introducing a standardized set of rules, MiCA crypto regulation ensures a safer environment for investors, shielding them from the market's volatility and the potential risks associated with digital asset investments. For crypto businesses, this translates to a more predictable and secure operating environment.

Licensing Requirements under MiCA

Navigating the licensing landscape under MiCA requires a deep understanding of its requisites. Primarily, any crypto company operating within the EU must be fully licensed and compliant with MiCA standards. This includes a broad spectrum of entities from crypto exchanges to wallet providers.

The licensing process under MiCA is meticulous and requires companies to demonstrate a high level of operational and financial robustness. Key elements include robust IT infrastructure, stringent AML (Anti-Money Laundering) policies, and comprehensive risk management frameworks. These requirements are not just formalities; they are essential to ensuring that companies can withstand the volatile nature of the crypto market and protect their clients' investments.

Here is a breakdown of the requirements and standards for obtaining a MiCA crypto license:

  1. Submission of Application: Legal entities or other undertakings intending to provide crypto-asset services must submit their application for a MiCA license to the competent authority of their home Member State​​.
  2. Application Contents: The application should contain specific information, including proof of the good repute and appropriate knowledge, skills, and experience of the management body, details of shareholders with qualifying holdings, descriptions of internal control mechanisms, ICT systems, procedures for segregation of clients' crypto-assets and funds, and complaints-handling procedures​​.
  3. Assessment of Completeness: Competent authorities will assess whether the application is complete within 25 working days of receipt. If the application is not complete, a deadline will be set for the applicant to provide any missing information​​.
  4. Notification of Complete Application: Once an application is deemed complete, competent authorities will notify the applicant crypto-asset service provider​​.
  5. Assessment of Compliance: Competent authorities will assess the application for compliance with MiCA requirements within 60 working days of receiving a complete application. This assessment may include a review of the crypto-asset white paper and cooperation with anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist financing bodies​​.
  6. Draft Decision: A fully reasoned draft decision granting or refusing authorization will be made by the competent authorities based on the assessment​​.
  7. Potential Suspension of Assessment: The assessment period may be suspended if the competent authorities request additional information from the applicant. The suspension shall not exceed 20 working days​​.
  8. Consultation Before Authorization: Before granting or refusing authorization, competent authorities shall consult relevant bodies or authorities as required​​.

These steps outline the structured approach to obtaining a MiCA license, focusing on compliance, transparency, and the integrity of the applicant.Top of Form Each step in this process is crucial for obtaining and maintaining a MiCA crypto license. It's important for companies to approach each stage with thorough preparation and a commitment to maintaining high standards of compliance.Top of Form

MiCA's licensing requirements are designed to foster a transparent, fair, and stable crypto market in the EU. For a crypto-fiat bank like Kyrrex, complying with these regulations is a testament to its commitment to providing secure and compliant crypto services. Kyrrex's alignment with MiCA regulations showcases its dedication to maintaining the highest standards of operational integrity and customer protection.

Businesses that Fall Under the MiCA Licensing Requirements

Here's a general list of the types of companies and businesses that the MiCA licensing requirement covers:

  • Crypto-Asset Service Providers (CASPs): These include entities operating trading platforms, exchanges (crypto-to-fiat and crypto-to-crypto), and those offering custody or administration services for crypto-assets.
  • Issuers of Asset-Referenced Tokens (ARTs): Companies issuing ARTs, which are crypto-assets aiming to stabilize their value by referencing other assets or a combination of assets, including fiat currencies.
  • Issuers of E-Money Tokens (EMTs): Entities issuing EMTs, which are designed to maintain stable value by referencing a single fiat currency, similar to electronic money.
  • Providers of Crypto-Asset Exchange Services: Companies facilitating the exchange of crypto-assets for fiat currency or other crypto-assets.
  • Crypto-Asset Custody and Wallet Providers: Businesses offering secure storage and management of crypto-assets for clients.
  • Firms Providing Crypto-Asset Advisory Services: Companies offering advice related to investment in crypto-assets.
  • Crypto-Asset Issuers (excluding ARTs and EMTs): Entities responsible for the creation and initial distribution of various types of crypto-assets, excluding asset-referenced and e-money tokens.

Compliance Challenges and Solutions

Compliance with MiCA presents a unique set of challenges for crypto companies. Adapting to a new regulatory environment requires significant changes in operational, legal, and compliance structures. The primary challenge lies in the constant evolution of the crypto market, which demands that companies remain agile and informed.

To overcome these challenges, companies should implement a number of constructive measures, especially the ones outlined below:

  1. Invest in Compliance Systems: Companies should allocate resources to develop and maintain robust compliance systems that align with MiCA standards.
  2. Staff Training: Regular training programs for staff to ensure they are up-to-date with MiCA regulations and compliance procedures.
  3. Conduct Regular Audits: Implement a schedule for regular internal audits to assess and ensure adherence to compliance standards.
  4. Ongoing Reviews: Conduct periodic reviews of internal processes and policies to align with evolving MiCA regulations.
  5. Technological Advancements: Utilize advanced technology solutions to streamline and enhance compliance processes.
  6. Collaboration with Regulators: Engage in ongoing dialogue and collaboration with regulatory bodies for insights and guidance on compliance matters.
  7. Industry Collaboration: Work alongside other industry players to share best practices and navigate MiCA compliance complexities together.
  8. Proactive Approach: Adopt a forward-thinking strategy to view compliance not just as a requirement, but as an opportunity for growth and establishing market leadership.

Each of these steps plays a crucial role in ensuring that a company meets the MiCA compliance requirements. By adopting a proactive approach, companies can turn these challenges into opportunities for growth and market leadership.

For Kyrrex, adhering to MiCA standards is part of its broader strategy to ensure the highest level of service quality and security. It reflects the company's dedication to being at the forefront of regulatory compliance, setting a benchmark for other players in the industry.

Preparing for the Future: Next Steps for Crypto Companies

As MiCA paves the way for a regulated crypto market in the EU, companies need to prepare for its implementation. The first step is gaining a thorough understanding of MiCA's provisions and how they impact different aspects of crypto operations.

Crypto companies should start by assessing their current compliance status and identifying areas that need improvement. This may involve restructuring certain business practices, enhancing security measures, and updating internal policies.

It's also crucial for companies to stay updated with ongoing regulatory developments. Engaging with legal and compliance experts can provide valuable insights and ensure that companies remain on the right side of these evolving regulations.

Conclusion

MiCA marks a significant milestone in the journey towards a regulated and secure crypto market. For companies operating in this space, understanding and complying with MiCA is not just about adherence to regulations; it's about embracing a new era of transparency, security, and consumer trust.
