EU Institutions Are Scheduled To Discuss Critical Crypto Regulations

Three main European institutions – Council, Parliament, and Commission could finalize details for the two key crypto legislation in the region when they meet on Thursday this week. The leaders will discuss the final details of the Markets in Crypto Assets (MiCA) and Transfer of Funds Regulation legislation, which are anticipated to have a significant impact on the regional crypto markets.

The legislation aims to provide a framework for cryptocurrency use in the European Union and stop money laundering and cybercrime. The framework also attempts to include a number of safeguards for investors and buyers of cryptocurrencies. Before the MiCA rule goes into effect, the parliament will vote on it when it is finished.

The last trialogue meeting on Thursday is anticipated to resolve several key disagreements between the European Union leaders and the draught laws. The first concern is whether the scope of MiCA legislation should be extended to NFTs, and the second is if Crypto Asset Service Providers (CASPs) would need to demand identity verification of non-hosted wallets using their services. The question of whether CASPs should disclose transfers from wallets that are not hosted is still up for debate. The support of NFTs for client protection from all stakeholders is not obvious.

Leaders, however, are already in agreement that all crypto transactions made by consumers through CASPs would be covered by TFR's AML legislation, with no minimum limit exceptions.

The regulations apply to stablecoins, and those who issue them will be closely regulated, especially those who issue asset-backed tokens and e-money tokens. If they do not have a license to create stable currencies, they will no longer be permitted to use EU trading platforms. Those that opt to be approved run the danger of having their issue restricted or having yield services on the stable currencies outlawed.

The leaders still need to settle their disagreements on how to supervise and halt stablecoin production if it is being utilized for massive payments.

Despite what some media outlets have reported, the legislation will not outright prohibit Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies based on proof-of-work. Additionally, peer-to-peer wallet transactions are entirely prohibited under the legislation. The MiCA regulation does not include decentralized financial apps either. But the EU Commission will continue to monitor the question of whether this area needs regulation. Later, Defi supervision will be the subject of a pilot study.
