Global Crypto Landscape:

A Regulatory Odyssey The 11th edition of 21Shares’ “State of Crypto” report delves into the evolving crypto landscape, emphasizing the growing jurisdictional competition for talent and industry hubs. In this dynamic scenario, the European Union’s recent move with the Data Act raises questions about the future of blockchain innovation. The law’s “kill switch” for smart contracts has triggered uncertainty, potentially driving away blockchain developers. Simultaneously, the United States grapples with a lack of regulatory clarity, posing challenges for entrepreneurial and consumer confidence.

Bright Spots Amidst Uncertainty

Amidst these challenges, the report identifies potential bright spots. The Clarity for Payment Stablecoins Act in the U.S. brings hope for stablecoin issuers, providing a glimpse of regulatory clarity. Meanwhile, certain regions stand out as favorable for fostering crypto industry innovation. The United Kingdom, with positive feedback on its regulatory scheme, aims to attract crypto businesses in 2024. Hong Kong, having taken a “U-turn” on crypto regulation, issues licenses and establishes criteria for stablecoin issuers, signaling a renewed interest in becoming a crypto hub.
