Another day, another city! 🙂
Today I attended DACOM EU 2023 in Paris organized by Solidus Labs in partnership with Kaiko and XReg Consulting.
DACOM EU focused on MiCA’s implementation and how it can shape the future of crypto regulation, DeFi’s market integrity challenges, and the industry’s ongoing collective action to make crypto markets fairer for everybody. The panels held were:
1) The state of crypto regulation in France & the EU (Gabriel Cumenge, Will Marshall, Chen Arad)
2) Regulatory clarity as a growth driver (Andrew Price, Sopheap Lao, Ernest Lima, Sharon Lewis)
3) Compliance on-and off-chain (Simone Maini, Kiefer Rörik, Rija Rameloarison, Spyridon Antonopoulos)
4) Crypto’s new frontiers (Elodie de Marchi, Andri Rabetanety, Cassandra Cox, Hugo Bordet, Chen Arad)
Conclusions: The professional market participants are supporting and implementing crypto regulation frameworks. Especially Europe is moving ahead with its upcoming MiCA regulation framework, but there is still a lot to do to protect, secure, and grow several blockchain-related fields so that more institutional users will join. In my point of view, also crypto data providers and centralized exchanges should work together for establishing a uniform set of best practices and methodologies for addressing current challenges.
