E&S Group is now part of thinkBLOCKtank, a thinktank created by non-profit organisation European Leading Blockchain Professionals, which is publishing the first joint paper on EU token regulation. This paper was put together and drafted by members from various European countries, including Malta, which is represented by E&S Group’s Dr Christian Ellul.
ThinkBLOCKtank is based in Luxembourg, and its aim is to bring leading professionals, lawyers and academics from European countries together. Through this dynamic synergy, the thinktank will provide high quality research, policy recommendations, and analysis on a full range of issues concerning distributed ledger technologies and blockchains, cryptocurrencies and crypto-assets.
The think tank will officially release its first working paper, titled EU Token Regulation Paper. The working paper builds on the Token Regulation Paper issued by the Finance Working Group of Blockchain Bundesverband, the German Blockchain association, in February 2018.
The EU Token Regulation Paper is a pan-European effort to shed long-awaited light on the laws and regulations, tax and accounting questions applying to the issuance of tokens in a number of European jurisdictions. In addition to a broad evaluation of applicable token regulations under a EU-wide perspective, a detailed analysis has been provided for individual countries such as England & Wales, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Malta, and Poland.
The EU Token Regulation Paper will be presented and discussed with all interested parties at a public meet-up event which will be held in Luxembourg at 6.30pm on 28th November 2018, at The Office, 29 Boulevard Grande-Duchesse Charlotte, L-1331 Luxembourg.
All interested parties and the media are very welcome to attend, meet and ask questions to the panellists. Please register here.
