EU votes for MiCA
According to reports, EU lawmakers voted 517 in favor of MiCA, while it received 38 votes against the set of rules. This is the first time governments came together to oversee the emerging crypto industry. However, this development takes off as the market saw the terrible collapse of several crypto exchanges and projects.
Bloomberg reported that Mairead McGuinness, European Commissioner for Financial Services, said she expects the law to take effect in July. However, it must be approved by the bloc’s 27 member states.
First presented by the Commission in September 2020, MiCA was part of the wider digital finance package. This included DORA (Digital Operational Resilience Act) and DLR pilot regime for wholesale use. The implication of MiCA allows the market participants to enter without navigating through 27 sets of different national rules and regulations.
The stablecoin-related provisions are expected to come into effect in July 2024. This will come into effect after 12 months of the entry into force of the regulations.
