New EU Crypto Regulation: Quo Vadis MiCAR & Travel Rule?

Datum: 26.10.23
Veranstaltungsort: Zunfthaus zur Schmiden, Marktgasse 20, 8001 Zürich

The SWISS CAPITALMARKETFORUM is delighted to invite you to an event on the upcoming EU Market in Crypto Asset Regulation (MiCAR) and Travel Rule as part of the Transfer of Funds Regulation (TFR).

Our event on the “NEW EU CRYPTO REGULATION: QUO VADIS MiCAR & TRAVEL RULE?” covers the most current topics in the regulation of crypto assets. Become acquainted with the practical application and the impact of the upcoming regulation.

✔ Keynote Speech on MiCAR

MiCAR aims to standardize regulation governing transparency and disclosure obligations related to the issuance, public offering, and trading of crypto assets. It also encompasses guidelines for the licensing and overseeing of crypto asset service providers (CASPs) and entities issuing crypto assets.

✔ MiCAR Countdown – Meaning, impact and outlook for the EU and Switzerland

With the impending implementation of MiCAR it is important to highlight the potential consequences MiCAR may have on the industry. Issuers will have a window of 12 months to comply with MiCAR requirements, while CASPs will have an extended period of 18 months to achieve MiCAR compliance.

✔ Travel Rule/TFR – Challenges and solutions for CASPs

The European Parliament concluded their voting process on April 20, determining that European CASPs must adapt their compliance framework to align with the European Union’s adoption of the Financial Action Task Force’s (FATF’s) Travel Rule within the next 18 months.

✔ Apéro Riche

After the session we offer an Apéro Riche to enjoy personal conversations to discuss the topics in a more detailed way and to give our participants the opportunity to network.
