The Blockchain Policy Initiative Report is a community-driven and continuously refined groundwork to help eliminate the regulatory uncertainty around distributed ledager technology.

In its now over 100 pages of expert analysis, we discuss the dynamics of the respective core technologies and their effects on economic processes. We explore how cryptocurrencies and cryptotokens match with existing regulations and recommend that they be treated as a separate asset class – without automatically triggering securities law, AML laws or VAT regulation.

Thereby, we propose a legislative approach that shall serve the interests of businesses, investors and civil society alike. In this spirit, we call upon legislators to effectively collaborate with crypto experts in the establishment of a simple, yet robust regulatory framework.
