Foundation of thinkBLOCKtank: Experts want to create legal certainty for European blockchain projects
The Blockchain Federal Association should be familiar to one or the other crypto-enthusiasts in this country. In addition, in order for the blockchain regulation to gain momentum on the supranational level, a whole series of leading blockchain experts have decided to found the thinkBLOCKtank. The think tank primarily aims to conduct scientific research, provide policy advice, and provide analysis on a range of topics related to distributed ledger technology. This is clear from a press release available to CriptomonedaseICO.
One of the founding members of the think tank and partner of DWF Rechtsanwaltsgesellschaft, Nina Siedler, is satisfied. She tells CriptomonedaseICO:
"We decided to set up this EU think tank at the first meeting of this group in Berlin this June. Blockchain lawyers will be given a European voice with the think tank that is urgently needed given the ongoing fragmentation of the European legal framework. Therefore, I am looking forward to working even more closely with many esteemed colleagues! "
Initially, the publication of the "EU Token Regulation Paper" is imminent. According to the announcement, this builds on the "Token Regulation Paper" of the Blockchain Federal Association, in which Mrs. Siedler also played a key role. The paper is primarily about analyzing the existing legal framework for European blockchain projects. The press release states:
"The EU Token Regulation Paper is a pan-European project designed to highlight the long awaited laws and regulations governing the issuance of tokens in a number of European jurisdictions."
Furthermore, the working paper promises to look at the differences in legal norms from different EU Member States such as England, Germany, Ireland, Italy and Malta.
Blockchain regulation now
CriptomonedaseICO has long been following the regulatory debate surrounding blockchain and Distributed Legend Technologies (DLT). On June 15, we already reported on a public panel discussion on the status quo of European Blockchain regulation. The result was positive. Contrary to popular belief, regulatory authorities are relatively open to Blockchain in this country. Furthermore, the BaFin is well positioned in terms of its competence in Blockchain, so the credo of Germany representative of the panel, Daniel Resas.
The official kick-off event for thinkBLOCKtank in Luxembourg is scheduled for November 28th. The working group also wants to present the new regulatory paper. Interested parties can register via Eventbrite.
