European Parliament proposes to reform the MiCA law

A group of European parliamentarians propose to reform the MiCA law to include non-fungible tokens (NFT) within the new regulatory framework

European parliamentarians from the Green Party and socialist representatives propose to reform the law on Cryptoactive Markets, better known as the MiCA Law, to include non-fungible tokens (NFT) within the new regulatory framework, since the regulation does not contemplate issues related to digital collectibles.

The intention of the legislators, in reforming the regulation, is to incorporate NFT buying and selling platforms so that they can be regulated and protected “against money laundering (AML) in the European Union.”

According to what is expressed in the documentation presented by the group of legislators, it is necessary to consider it because “the regulations of the MiCA Law are designed to be complied with by service providers with cryptocurrencies.”

Assembly members also believe that it is important to regulate “decentralized autonomous organizations (DAO) and towards hardware wallets or cold purses.” The current legislation maintains “that the transfers made by the owners of the wallets with the exchanges must be notified to the regulatory entities.”

As will be recalled, the MiCA law was recently agreed by European negotiators with the fundamental purpose of “regulating issuers and service providers with crypto assets.” However, the new law must be sanctioned by the Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs, with a full vote, and once it is approved, its general implementation in the eurozone will begin 18 months after it comes into force.
