The (currently) European blockchain think tank aka thinkBLOCKtank, a Luxembourg based non-profit organization, will bring leading professionals, lawyers and academics from European countries together. They will provide high quality research, policy recommendations, and analysis on a full range of issues concerning Distributed Ledger Technologies and Blockchains, Cryptocurrencies and Cryptoassets.
Following its formation on the 28th November 2018, 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 (https://www.bundesblock.de/2018/02/…ion-paper/). Subsequently, the group grew to about 50 professionals from 20 European countries.
The "EU Token Regulation Paper" is a pan-European effort to shed long awaited light on the laws and regulations 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. A list of the contributing authors can be found in the paper, further country sections will follow.
Target Group: The broad public and politicians.
