Legal Research Report: Regulatory Approaches to Cryptoassets

The Law Library of Congress is proud to present the report, Regulatory Approaches to Cryptoassets

This report covers 46 jurisdictions, including the European Union, and focuses primarily on regulatory approaches to cryptoassets created through blockchain, or distributed ledger technology, in the context of financial market and investor protection laws. It also contains updated information regarding the application of tax and AML/CFT laws to cryptocurrencies in the countries covered. Additional countries not covered in this report may also have taken actions in one or both of these areas, but were not included due to there being no existing policies, or new or pending laws, related to financial regulation and oversight of cryptocurrency activities.

This report is one of many prepared by the Law Library of Congress. Visit the Comprehensive Index of Legal Reports page for a complete listing of reports and the Current Legal Topics page for our highlighted and newer reports.
