Coinbase exec predicts EU crypto regulation in 2019

posted 3 months ago
Coinbase exec Marcus Hughes, UK lead counsel for San Francisco-based crypto exchange Coinbase, expects this year to mean big changes for Bitcoin regulation around the world
"Within the next year or two, we'll see big developments... Regulation will take shape this year, particularly in Europe."

For example, last month the UK government said it stands ready to empower the FCA to oversee all cryptocurrency assets. Hughes went on to say "We could end up with EU member states creating their own crypto laws, but it's certainly possible we'll get a unified approach in Europe. It would make life for companies like Coinbase a lot easier."
