Two partners from ISOLAS’ expert Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) team have contributed to Global Legal Insight’s Blockchain & Cryptocurrency Regulation 2020 guide, alongside international firms including Clifford Chance, White & Case and Linklaters, among many others.
Joey Garcia and Jonathan Garcia have written the comprehensive guide on Gibraltar’s progressive DLT framework, setting out what crypto providers and investors need to know when doing business in Gibraltar.
They also discuss the Gibraltar Association for New Technologies (GANT) , an association formed by the Government and the private sector to enhance the reputation, use and trust of blockchain, DLT and other new technologies.
The Global Legal Insights series provides insights into the current legal issues, providing readers with expert analysis of legal, economic and policy developments through the eyes of the world’s leading lawyers. The Blockchain & Cryptocurrency Regulation 2020 guide covers government attitude and definition, cryptocurrency and sales regulation, taxation, money transmission laws and anti-money laundering requirements, promotion and testing ownership and licensing and mining across 38 jurisdictions. It is edited by Josias N. Dewey, a partner at Holland & Knight.
Joey/Jonathan said: “This is a complex area and we wanted to provide a useful guide so that anyone doing business in this area has all the facts at their disposal. From taxation to estate planning, this chapter includes a useful overview, however we’d be happy to arrange a meeting with anyone who would like to go into more detail on this subject.”
