Cryptoassets: navigating a fragmented legal framework

What you need to know about the regulation of bitcoin and other digital currencies.

Legislators and regulators are divided on their approach to cryptoassets: some are looking to ban cryptoasset trading; others require cryptoasset businesses to register with them while they devise a new set of rules.

Central banks meanwhile are thinking about launching their own digital currencies, which are less volatile and so could be more attractive than the likes of bitcoin.

On these pages, we take a general look at the legal and regulatory framework for cryptoassets, as well as what's happening in the EU, the USthe UK and Asia.
