On 7 July 2022, the International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO) issued its Crypto-Asset Roadmap for 2022-2023. The Roadmap sets out IOSCO’s policy agenda and work program for the crypto-asset sector over the next 12 to 24 months.
Earlier this year IOSCO established a board-level fintech taskforce (FTF) which was mandated to develop, oversee, deliver and implement IOSCO’s regulatory agenda for fintech and crypto-assets. The FTF will prioritise policy-focused work on crypto-asset markets and activities in its initial 12 to 24 months of operation, while continuing to monitor market developments associated with broader fintech-related trends and innovation. The FTF has set up two work streams focusing on crypto and digital assets and decentralised finance. Each workstream is aiming to publish a report with policy recommendations by the end of 2023.
