Regulation of Cryptocurrencies
Early this Autumn, the Cryptocurrency Task Force set up by the Chancellor in April will deliver its Report. The Task Force is led by HM Treasury, the FCA and the Bank of England. Its deliberations will result in proposals as to how the UK should regulate this dynamic but highly controversial new medium of exchange. Meanwhile the Treasury Select Committee has been probing into cryptocurrencies and, worldwide, they have become a major focus of speculation and rapidly rising and falling fortunes from China to Venezuela.
The Regulation of Cryptocurrencies conference, due to take place on 20th November, aims to give a forum for discussion of the Task Force’s Report, offering a variety of panel sessions to provide all stakeholders the opportunity to state and debate their points of view.
