BTCX CEO EU needs more crypto regulation efforts.

Christian Anders, the CEO of Btc. x, has stated that despite the Markets in Crypto Assets (MiCA) being signed into law, the European Union (EU) may need to do more lobbying of different regulators in Europe and work with the different governments.

In an interview with Cointelegraph, Anders noted that for the crypto framework stated in MiCA to be accepted in most European countries, such as Sweden, a bit of “pushing” might be required. He stated that MiCA gives the crypto industry a framework to operate with and is expected to bring clarity.

Anders mentioned that crypto exchanges eagerly await the full implementation of the MiCA framework, while acknowledging that governments like Sweden are hesitant to issue new licenses for crypto companies. He emphasized that while these governments cannot stop the framework, they can delay its progress. Furthermore, he mentioned the possibility of governments deeming the MiCA framework inadequate, leading to a two-sided power dynamic.

When asked for his opinion on which crypto exchange or theory the United States Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) would come for next, Anders said he thinks Crypto.com might be the next potential target as they operate in America. Continuing, he said he has a more Swedish perspective and could relate to the recent SEC clampdown on Binance and Coinbase. Anders said the SEC shares a similar approach with the government in Sweden as the regulatory challenges in Sweden are happening on a smaller scale when compared to the U.S.

Anders remains optimistic about Bitcoin, dismissing any negative notions. He believes that the efforts of banks and governments to impede cryptocurrency’s growth only fuel his enthusiasm. He asserts that Bitcoin’s (BTC) superiority becomes evident in comparison to the flaws of the fiat system and the stress caused by inflation.

The CEO highlighted the rise of the mining industry with companies like Intel entering and manufacturing mining machines. He noted that Bitcoin mining is gaining traction in Europe, especially with the increasing use of renewable energy. Additionally, he emphasized that the younger generation’s affinity for these technologies solidifies their role in shaping the future.
