Silvije Cipcic Bragadin, a director in Cipcic Bragadin Mesic & Associates commented:
” We are witnessing a dramatic changes in this innovative business sector as governments around the World are attempting to regulate blockchain, cryptocurrencies and various other crypto assets including all relevant markets infrastructure on various levels. Recently the European Commission proposed a Regulation on Markets in Crypto-assets and a regime on distributed ledger technology market infrastructures as wider Digital Finance package . In the USA, FINCEN also proposed a new legislation regime that will regulate the industry. At the same time, over the last couple of years the crypto industry so much that it caught everybody’s attention. Croatian Financial Services Supervisory Agency is also closely monitoring the development and should play an active role as more and more projects are being developed in the sector. We as lawyers believe that it is certainly the right place to be right now.”
