Full Statement by Martin Carkett, Policy Lead at the Tony Blair Institute for Global Change:

“While there is significant debate over how to define, restrict or embrace crypto, the Tony Blair Institute believes that governments need to strike the right balance between appropriate regulation to guard against risks while still fostering progress and innovation.  
“Crypto and Distributed Ledger Technologies are going to play a defining role in the 21st century and it’s right that the government is aiming to make the UK – which has long- standing strengths in the financial services industry – a global hub for cryptoasset technology and investment. 
“Bringing stablecoins within regulation, introducing a financial market infrastructure sandbox and a Financial Conduct Authority-led ‘CryptoSprint’ are all sensible approaches. It is particularly encouraging to see that policy makers will be working more closely with industry through a ministerial led engagement group.   
 “The UK is well positioned to get out ahead of other major economies in this space, but it needs to double down on its efforts to ensure it takes this opportunity. For example, the UK needs to move more quickly and decisively on a potential Bank of England Central Bank Digital Currency, on fostering innovation in DeFi as well as cryptoassets and on exploring feasibility and potential benefits of using DLT for sovereign debt instruments.”
