Afternoon webinar: Developments in crypto-assets and beyond

The market in crypto-assets continues to develop at a rapid pace. From the now more ‘classic’ examples such as Bitcoin, the market has expanded to non-fungible tokens of ownership (NFTs), decentralized finance (DeFi), smart contracts, etc. And that does not even begin to mention all developments going on around the blockchain technology and in the wider Web3 ecosphere. Legislators worldwide are now trying to get a grip on these developments in order to address some of the concerns posed by this rising market.
In the EU, the European legislator has last year adopted a comprehensive framework addressing different types of crypto-assets and several services provided around crypto-assets. This framework, the Markets in Crypto-Assets Regulation or MiCAR, will form the core of the EU legislation applicable to these developments.
In this webinar, we take a closer look at the MiCAR framework and its consequences for players on this market – both consumers and professionals. We also look at recent developments regarding smart contracts, Web3 and NFTs. A discussion of a few use cases will demonstrate the importance of these developments in practice. Last, we will look at the different cybersecurity requirements that will become applicable in this sphere, which professionals on this market should prepare for.
Niels Vandezande will talk on MiCAR and Pedro Demolder will talk about the cybersecurity framework.
