Regulations to strengthen companies’ legitimacy – government DLT advisor

Blockchain Europe Gibraltar Regulations

In a bid to attract new fintech firms, the Gibraltar Financial Services Commission (GFSC) is preparing a new set of licensing rules for Blockchain startups who use the technology to transfer money or assets.

The British overseas territory sees this new regulatory system as a way to attract new fintech firms — new Blockchain companies could boost the financial services industry after Brexit.
