CryptoUK undeniable focus on crypto-asset sector

CryptoUK was launched in 2018 and since its launch, it has endeavored to build strategically beneficial bonds with industry leaders, regulators, and policymakers. 

CryptoUK is the country’s self-regulatory trade association that represents the interest of the crypto-asset sector. Its members are leading companies in the sector that believe that crypto-assets can augment financial transactions to holistically benefit the customers, business, and security. It has always believed in the need for a strict yet supportive regulatory framework for the sector in the UK. The Cryptoassets Taskforce was launched following its campaign by the UK government which published its final report in 2018.CryptoUK and its esteemed members are focussed on crypto-asset promotions and believe that with their efforts they can contribute to U.K’s crypto-asset taskforce consultation on stablecoins which is expected later this year. 

CryptoUK has already set a  high standard for the industry with self-regulation as an important stepping stone to full regulation.
