Episode 36 — Fintech Focus: The Year in Crypto — What Changed and What Comes Next in 2022?

January 4, 2022
We discuss the major developments in crypto-related legal and regulatory frameworks in 2021, whereby crypto is increasingly being brought under some form of regulation — especially stablecoins — and look ahead to 2022.

In 2021, the outlines of emerging crypto legal and regulatory regimes became steadily clearer. In the US, new regulators brought a fresh perspective and new enthusiasm for investor protections, with parallel efforts gaining traction in Congress. Across the Atlantic, the European Commission adopted a digital finance package and will soon ratify the Regulation on Markets in Crypto-Assets (MiCA) framework.

In this episode of Connected With Latham, Simon Hawkins, Hong Kong partner and Co-Chair of the firm’s Global Blockchain and Digital Assets Task Force, joins New York partners Yvette Valdez and Stephen Wink, and London partner Stuart Davis, to review the legal and regulatory developments in crypto from 2021, and look ahead to the direction of travel in 2022.
