Block on the Rock: GibFin Highlights Blockchain and Regulation

Regulation is very much the name of the game in Gibraltar; the jurisdiction punches well above its weight when it comes to compliance. Back when the internet revolutionized the gambling industry, Gibraltar set itself up as a global leader in gambling regulation and now, with the rise of distributed ledger technology, it is seeking to once again lead the way in providing guidelines and compliance.

Held on the Sunborn Yacht Hotel on the 1st and 2nd of March this year, the issue of regulation was very much the main topic of conversation at the GibFin event; however, the conference covered a number of blockchain topics, from the economic effect of blockchains in Africa to IoT to ICOs. Issues, particularly with ICOs and legality and blockchain regulations worldwide, are stifling innovation and development, as well as having a knock-on effect on cryptocurrency prices, so jurisdictions which have a clear and full set of guidelines will help move the situation forward.
