ISOLAS LLP Partners Joey Garcia and Jonathan Garcia and Associate Jake Collado have contributed to the Gibraltar Chapter of the Global Legal Insights (“GLI”) – Blockchain & Cryptocurrency Regulation 2022.
GLI – Blockchain & Cryptocurrency Regulation 2020 covers government attitude and definition, cryptocurrency regulation, sales regulation, taxation, money transmission laws and anti-money laundering requirements, promotion and testing, ownership and licensing requirements, and mining in 28 jurisdictions.
The Gibraltar Chapter addresses, amongst other things, the uniquely receptive and progressive approach Gibraltar has taken to the growing cryptocurrency and wider blockchain and distributed ledger technology (“DLT”) sphere. On 1 January 2018, Gibraltar became the first jurisdiction in the world to deliver a framework of its kind that regulates businesses that use DLT for the defined purposes relating to a “storage” or “transfer” of “value”. In addition, Gibraltar’s crypto funds space has seen continued success as Gibraltar was shown to be the third-highest jurisdiction of choice for crypto hedge fund managers, after the UK and the US.
ISOLAS is delighted to have contributed to the Gibraltar Chapter of the Global Legal Insights guide. We hope the information provided will prove useful to those wishing to learn more about blockchain and cryptocurrency laws and regulations within this jurisdiction.
