Crypto Regulations in UK
Cryptocurrencies in the UK are regulated for anti-money laundering (AML) purposes depending on their nature and type. This means that some types of tokens are subject to specific regulations while others are not. The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) is the primary financial regulator in the UK, and has - along with HM Treasury - taken a constructive stance on crypto asset policy making by grounding its principles on balancing financial stability with competition and innovation.
