Gibraltar and ISOLAS LLP – a key combination in the DLT/Token Launch space
Gibraltar is quickly emerging in the Fintech space for new businesses starting up in this fast-moving sector.
With a sound regulatory environment that welcomes innovation together with an accessible and forward-thinking regulator, Gibraltar is a jurisdiction that many Fintech businesses (including blockchain start-ups, multi-currency digital wallet providers, e-money institutions and innovative payment service providers) are either setting up operations in or keeping a close eye on.
This has been accelerated by the proposal for a Distributed Ledger Technology Framework from the Government of Gibraltar and the Financial Services Commission. This document follows on from the ‘Virtual Currency: Outline Regulatory Framework’ paper which was produced by the Cryptocurrency working group co-chaired by partner Joey Garcia. Joey Garcia has recently been recognised as one of only 12 leading individuals in Blockchain by Chambers & Partners – click here for more info
