Leading Cryptocurrency Companies form Crypto UK Trade Body
Seven leading cryptocurrency companies operating the UK have formed an independent trade body tasked with developing self-regulatory standards for the cryptocurrency industry, in addition to “engag[ing] policymakers.”
The members of Crypto UK are Coinbase, Etoro, Cex.io, Blockex, Commerceblock, Coinshares, and Cryptocompare – comprising trading platforms, exchanges, asset managers, merchants, comparison websites, and intermediaries from the cryptocurrency sector.
“Regulation is Imminent”
The Crypto UK chairman and managing director of Etoro, Iqbal Gandham, described the trade body’s mission as “promot[ing] best practice and to work with government and regulators,” emphasizing his hope that the group can develop “the blueprint for what a future regulatory framework will look like.”
The CEO of Coinbase UK, Zeeshan Feroz, stated that the “fundamental” goal of Crypto UK is to “engag[e] as a single industry with the government,” adding that “Regulation is imminent and that’s a good thing.”
Crypto UK has issued a code of conduct outlining the principles by which its members are expected to adhere. The code of conduct emphasizes the need for members to operate with transparency and in full adherence to UK regulatory requirements, in addition to making practical propositions with regards to the management of customer funds.
Cryptocurrency Sector “Severely Misunderstood” by Regulators
Crypto UK has stated that it seeks to “raise understanding of the sector at a time of significant growth in popularity,” emphasizing the need for pressure to be placed on government “to introduce appropriate regulation to protect consumers and business certainty, [whilst] allowing the sector to flourish in the UK.”
Mr. Gandham described the cryptocurrency industry as being “severely misunderstood” by mainstream institutions. “That’s why Crypto UK has been established,” Mr. Dandham said, “to promote best practice and to work with government and regulators to ensure that the UK benefits from the exciting potential of this international technology.”
