Whether you pronounce it Meeka (as Andrew does) or Myca (the correct way!), the Markets in Crypto Assets Regulation (MiCA) will be a game changer for any firm operating, or planning to operate, in the European crypto/digital asset space. The stick - MiCA will bring a significant regulatory burden on issuers of digital assets and digital asset service providers including requirements around minimum capital, resources, risk, internal control and compliance. The carrott - (i) a regulatory badge that gives confidence to clients that the firm is trustworthy and (ii) an EU passport to carry out activities in other Member States without requiring additional authorisation in each country. In this episode, Andrew Tzialli and I chat all things Myca including regulatory requirements, timing, costs and the likely impact on the European crypto assets market.
