Virtual Assets – Regulation and Developments in Hong Kong


As cryptocurrencies and other virtual assets gain wider use and acceptance by the public, they have increasingly drawn regulatory and law enforcement attention. Earlier this year, SFC and HKMA have jointly published new regulatory approaches regarding virtual asset-related activities. Legislative process is also under way for amending the AMLO and setting up a virtual asset service provider licensing regime. Please join us in this interactive webinar to discuss:

  • Definitions of Virtual Assets and Some Popular Types
  • Current Regulatory Framework for Virtual Assets in HK – What are Covered, What are Not
  • Updates on the Proposed Virtual Asset Service Provider Licensing Regime and Other Regulatory Initiatives

We cover a range of timely Virtual Assets updates and issues, including regulatory, policy and industry-related developments.
