FTX collapse, Binance’s US settlement provide strong case for MiCA regulations By Cointelegraph

The collapse of FTX in 2022 and Binance’s recent $4.3-billion settlement with United States authorities provide a strong argument for the provisions of the European Union’s Markets in Crypto-Assets (MiCA) legislation, a European Commission official said in an interview.

Ivan Keller, policy officer for the European Commission, spoke to Cointelegraph at the MoneyLIVE conference in Amsterdam. News of Binance’s high-profile settlement with the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) broke the night before Keller’s keynote and served as a pertinent reflection point for MiCA’s full-scale application in 2024.
