“It is my objective to make the United Kingdom a world leader in cryptoasset technology, and indeed the policies we’ve laid out today will assist businesses in innovating, investing, and scaling up in this country.”

On Monday, John Glen, the UK’s economic secretary to the Treasury, spoke about the government’s crypto plan at the Innovate Finance Global Summit.

“We want this country to be a worldwide hub, the best location in the world to start and scale crypto-companies,” he said, adding:

“If there’s anything I want you to remember from today, it’s that crypto firms are welcome in the United Kingdom.”

“If crypto-technologies are going to be a key part of the future, we in the United Kingdom want to be in early.” Indeed, if we commit now and act now, we will be able to lead the way,” the economic secretary emphasized.

Glen remarked that “the way we regulate crypto-technologies needs to be dynamic,” commenting on the British government’s “detailed plan” released on Monday.

Regulation ought not be regarded as a fixed and rigid entity. Instead, we should think about regulatory code in the same way that we think about computer code. We refine and rewrite it as needed.

He then went on to discuss stablecoin legislation. “I could tell that we will be legislating to integrate some stablecoins into our payments framework,” he said. “This will set the conditions for stablecoin issuers and service providers to function and expand in the United Kingdom.”

The economic secretary addressed the larger crypto market’s regulation, adding, “We believe the market has changed enough for us to contemplate regulating a wider approach of crypto activities, such as bitcoin trading. We’ll also provide advice on a world-class regulatory framework for the rest of the crypto industry.”
