UK Crypto State
The UK government has previously announced its intention to make the country a “cryptocurrency hub” in April 2022. This initially included plans for the Royal Mint to issue its own NFTs, but those plans were eventually dropped by him in March 2023.
The UK recently announced plans to create a post-Brexit crypto regulation and is now subject to heavy regulation by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). The FCA recently cracked down on unregistered cryptocurrency ATMs and non-compliant advertising, and even targeted certain cryptocurrency companies such as Binance.
Statista suggests that the UK crypto industry could generate $1.89 billion in revenue in 2023.
