FFRI Interviews European Commission Adviser Peter Kerstens: How Does the EU Regulate Digital Assets

In the first of a three-part interview, Fried Frank Partner Steven Lofchie interviews Peter Kerstens, an Adviser for Technological Innovation and Cybersecurity for the European Commission.

Mr. Kerstens chaired the EC's FinTech Taskforce, which helped create the Market in Crypto-assets Regulation (MiCA), a comprehensive regulatory regime tailored specifically to crypto-assets. In this first session, Mr. Kerstens explains how MiCA is being implemented in the European markets.

The next two sessions will be published tomorrow and Wednesday. Hyperlinks to the Memoranda (below the interview) are published in the FFRI library and may be password-protected. Free access to FFRI can be obtained by requesting a password through or by emailing Cheryl Kuntz at [email protected].
