We carried out a regulatory mapping exercise of crypto-assets that led to the conclusion that EU legislation would be needed in this area. We welcome the initial work done by central banks on assessing the merits of central bank digital currencies. #WEF20
The @EU_Commission intends to propose 🇪🇺 legislation later this year on a common approach to crypto-assets, including stablecoins. We need to act quickly. Already launched a public consultation on how these rules should look, everybody can contribute. It is open until 19 March‼️
It was a pleasure to share the stage with @blackrock CEO Larry Fink today! We had a great discussion about the role of the financial sector in tackling #inequality and #climate related risks. Watch it here: https://t.co/mHW5yMkLvx
