Crypto adoption via regulation: Setting rules for centralized exchanges

MARKET_WATCH Regulation

While some security issues do exist, major internet outages like the one witnessed across the EU recently cannot really threaten cryptocurrencies or their associated networks. 

 

Centralized cryptocurrency exchanges have become the backbone of the nascent crypto ecosystem, making way for retail and institutional traders to trade cryptocurrencies despite a constant fear of government crackdowns and lack of support from policymakers. 

These crypto exchanges over the years have managed to put self-regulatory checks and implemented policies in line with the local financial regulations to grow despite the looming uncertainty.

 

Cryptocurrency regulation continues to occupy mainstream debates and experts’ opinions, but despite public demand and requests from stakeholders of the nascent ecosystem, policymakers continue to overlook the rapidly growing sector that reached a market capitalization of $3 trillion at the peak of the bull run in 2021.

 

Over the past five years, many local and national governments have shown interest in regulating the crypto market but often got perplexed by the vast ecosystem and complexities involved in regulating certain decentralized aspects of the market. As a result, most of the governments that have issued some guidelines or rules related to crypto have done so based on the existing financial regulations, but the evolving market has proven too fast-paced.
