How well do you know the world of cryptocurrencies? We knew very little and that is why we decided to participate in the event “Crypto evolution & VASP impact Meetup”, organized by Fintech Belgium in collaboration with the Belgian branch of the Global Law Firm DLA Piper.
The main themes were the new EU regulation for Cryptocurrencies and virtual asset service providers (VASPs), as well as the new Belgian law applicable to these providers.
Experts discussed how to de-risk the crypto market and make sure that laws target anti-money laundering and darknet users, whose activities are illegal, rather than blocking investors and crypto-enthusiasts.
The event was held at DLA Piper’s Belgian HQ, next to Palais de Justice. We were welcomed by Pierre Berger, DLA Piper’s Corporate Finance & Regulatory Partner, head of financial services, funds and the FinTech & Insurance sector group in Belgium.
It was the perfect opportunity to introduce ourselves to the lawyers of DLA Piper Belgium and present our services to them, focusing on our expertise in the legal and financial translations.
