What is in store for you in the Crypto Compass?
Blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies are game changers for the capital markets of the future. Trust plays an important role. Whether it's on a direct level between market participants or on a societal level as part of a thriving economy, capital markets are built on that trust.
Cryptoassets, stablecoins, tokens, crypto securities: dynamic industries such as blockchain and crypto are developing new products and related terms almost daily. It is important to build a knowledge base to ensure clarity and provide investors with adequate information about crypto products.
As MiCAR, eWpG, etc. have shown, when it comes to a new asset class, few topics dominate financial policy discussions as much as cryptocurrencies. From specific questions about taxation to fundamental questions about allocation to certain asset classes, cryptocurrencies have dominated the regulatory and financial policy landscape in recent years.
The crypto ecosystem is growing. And it is particularly dynamic in Europe and Germany — the number of companies, investors and customers involved in the market continues to grow. This is creating jobs and innovative services, while also contributing to the growth of the European and German economies.
The previous sections have made it clear that cryptoassets are only the beginning of a development towards a tokenized (financial) economy that is progressing inexorably at both national and European levels. Political decisions can either help or hinder this development.
