The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), the United Kingdom’s top financial regulator, has said that it will further ties on crypto regulation with its United States counterpart so that the rules provide certainty. 

Nikhil Rathi, Chief executive of FCA, said while speaking at the Institute for International Economics, “In the past, innovative firms would have been pleading for less regulation. Now they understand and appreciate that rules are there to help provide certainty. One area of global focus is crypto, both opportunities and risks. The US and UK will deepen ties on crypto asset regulation and market developments — including in relation to stablecoins and the exploration of central bank digital currencies,” reported
