Stablecoins and MICA

Dalaw's expertise extends to the burgeoning domain of stablecoins, a critical element of the digital economy. Our legal services navigate the complexities of stablecoin regulation, which involves the synthesis of financial law, cryptocurrency frameworks, and consumer protection. In this volatile landscape, we ensure that our clients are well-informed and prepared for regulatory shifts that impact the issuance, governance, and operational integrity of stablecoins. 


The advent of the new Markets in Crypto-Assets (MICA) regulation represents a significant step in the EU's approach to crypto-assets, and Dalaw is at the forefront in interpreting and implementing this comprehensive framework. MICA aims to bring clarity and security to crypto-asset activities within the EU, establishing stringent requirements for issuers and service providers. As these regulations set a new precedent for the market, Dalaw provides strategic counsel to help clients align with the MICA standards, manage risks, and capitalize on new opportunities. 

Our advisory covers the full scope of MICA, including the categorization of crypto-assets, the compliance requirements for asset-referenced tokens (which include stablecoins), and the authorization and operating conditions for crypto-asset service providers. By staying abreast of the evolving legislative environment, Dalaw positions its clients to lead in the creation and distribution of stablecoins and other crypto-assets within a secure and compliant framework. 

In summary, Dalaw is equipped to guide clients through the intricacies of stablecoin regulation and the comprehensive demands of the MICA regulation, ensuring that digital finance initiatives are robust, legally sound, and primed for success in an increasingly competitive and regulated market.
