In February 2018 Malta has extended the Professional Investor Fund regulations to allow them to invest in virtual currencies. SGGG Fexserv received the approval for the first application submitted for a regulated crypto currency fund.

Another consultation process for the regulation of crypto assets, related services providers and DLT/Blockchain followed. The three initiatives presented were unanimously approved by the Maltese Parliament, including the Virtual Financial Assets Act “VFAA” (Bill by that time).The aforementioned legislative framework came into force in November 2018. The aim of the VFAA is to regulate the field of Initial Virtual Financial Asset Offerings and Virtual Financial Assets.

The purpose of the seminar is to provide answers to the regulatory and operational questions faced by emerging cryptocurrency operators. It will introduce Malta and its regulatory regime as well as main challenges faced by operators. Finally, it will provide you with connections to service providers in the crypto currency environment to satisfy regulatory requirements. SGGG Fexserv and Konfidio Token Advisory invite you to a panel discussion with a range of highly knowledgeable industry professionals who will share their thoughts and personal experience on the subject.
