  • Meanwhile, the GFSC guidance is looking to tackle such issues. According to the regulatory principle, cryptocurrency firms operating in Gibraltar must put measures in place to prevent manipulation of prices, liquidity or market information. Businesses are required to also prevent insider trading activities by their employees.
  • Speaking to CNBC, Gibraltar’s minister for digital and financial services, Albert Isola, said:

“We were the first jurisdiction in 2018 to launch the legal and regulatory framework, and we’re now the first jurisdiction to launch a framework for market integrity. The more there is around the world in terms of international standards for this space, the more trust, the more usage, and the more adoption we will have around the world.”

  • Gibraltar has also served as an attractive spot for cryptocurrency exchanges. As previously reported by CryptoPotato back in November 2021, exchange giant Huobi announced that it would move its spot trading operations to the region.
