The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) is a financial regulatory body in the UK and operates independently of its Government. It estimates that approximately 1.9 million people above the age of 18 hold cryptocurrency and this number continues to grow, making it necessary for financial institutions to approach the digital currency market and facilitate their transactions.
In the post-Brexit era, the UK government needs to acknowledge cryptocurrencies, so London and the entire nation could be placed at the center of a “reputable and safe” financial market, the non-executive chairman of Shore Capital Markets stated. To make all of this possible, regulations should be recalibrated so the London market would compete with bigger markets globally.
