ISOLAS Partner Jonathan Garcia, Associate Jake Collado and Consultant and Fintech Ambassador Joey Garcia have contributed to the Gibraltar chapter of the Global Legal Insights guide – Blockchain and Cryptocurrency Regulation.
The Global Legal Insights book provides expert analysis of legal, economic and policy developments of current legal issues, from the eyes of world-leading lawyers. It represents the third occasion that ISOLAS has been asked to support the development of the guide.
The 2023 blockchain and crypto-currency regulation guide covers governments’ attitudes and definitions, crypto regulation, sales regulation, taxation, money transmission laws and anti-money laundering requirements, promotion and testing, ownership and licensing requirements, and mining throughout 31 jurisdictions.
The Gibraltar chapter showcases the distinctive and progressive outlook of the jurisdiction’s approach to meeting demand in the blockchain, cryptocurrency, and distributed ledger technology (DLT) sectors. Along with Gibraltar developing the first DLT-specific regulatory and principles-based legislative framework for operators, it recently extended the requirements for DLT regulation which was designed to enable firms to eradicate insider trading and other forms of market abuse, improve standards, transparency and protect the rights and interests of consumers.
Partner Jonathan Garcia said: “ISOLAS is proud to have contributed to the Gibraltar chapter of the guide and we hope the chapter is insightful to those wanting to learn more about what Gibraltar has to offer in the blockchain and wider crypto sector.”
