Gibraltar’s DLT Regulation Launching in January 2018

Gibraltar is on the brink of becoming the first jurisdiction in Europe (and one of the only in the world) to regulate cryptocurrency related businesses. As from 1 January 2018, the Financial Services Commission (FSC) of Gibraltar will be regulating individuals and firms that engage in activities not subject to regulation under another framework and that, for business purposes, use distributed ledger technology for the transmission or storage of value belonging to others.
