We Have a Collective Responsibility To Maintain Market Integrity in Virtual Asset Markets - How Does Industry Achieve This?
In April 2022, H.M. Government of Gibraltar published new regulations setting the standards for market integrity in the virtual asset space.
Minister for Digital and Financial Services, the Hon Albert Isola MP, said, “Gibraltar continues to lead the way in defining standards in the virtual asset sector. As is the case with traditional markets, I have long believed that defining standards of market integrity would be required for the continued development and adoption of this industry. Like any other market, the virtual asset market must operate in a manner that is fair, orderly and efficient, whilst enhancing the levels of trust that firms in the regulated sector currently enjoy. We must ensure that we provide operators with a framework that enables them to maintain the same high standards as operators do in traditional industries. I am most grateful to our panel of experts who have played such an integral role in shaping this new legislation working together with the GFSC and to sector representatives for their invaluable contribution to the industry consultation process.”
This panel will discuss the origin and development of this innovative addition to the DLT Regulatory Principles with those that created the framework and those that are required to adopt them.
