Non-EU countries were recommended to tighten crypto regulation


Countries outside the Schengen area should provide stricter oversight of the cryptocurrency industry. This is stated in a report by the European Parliamentary Research Service (EPRS).

“There are still several channels through which the financial system and the autonomy of the European Union continue to be at risk, as they depend on the political actions of non-EU countries in the context of applying MiCA“, the document says.

EPRS experts identified a decrease in the attractiveness of the market and the widespread use of stablecoins as potential consequences for financial stability.

The report found that the United States has a “fragmented regulatory environment” involving various stakeholders at the federal and local levels. According to experts, this indirectly affects legal clarity and certainty of regulation.
