The European Banking Authority Establishes Final Rules for MiCA Regulation

MiCA is a major advancement in the regulation of cryptocurrency markets, providing a unified and focused strategy at the European Union level. It includes tailored regulations for cryptocurrencies and associated activities and services. Additionally, the comprehensive MiCA framework governs services related to cryptocurrencies that are currently not addressed in EU laws.


The primary goal of the MiCA regulation is to uphold market integrity and financial stability through the regulation of public offerings of crypto-assets. Additionally, it aims to enhance consumer awareness of the risks involved. In the implementation process of MiCA, ESMA collaborates closely with EBA, EIOPA, and the ECB to seek public input on a set of technical standards to be released in three phases. The objective is to develop preliminary measures that align with public needs.


This regulatory framework is groundbreaking in the EU as MiCA will have direct effect in all member states, including Malta, without requiring national implementation. This development signifies a significant milestone in acknowledging cryptocurrency as a fundamental component of the financial system and in safeguarding investors in the digital realm.
