Crypto law, sometimes referred to cryptocurrency law or blockchain law, is the legal framework and regulations governing the use, trading, and other activities related to cryptocurrencies, blockchain technology, and other digital assets. It contains a wide range of legal matters specific to the digital asset sphere, including:


This involves learning about and following the guidelines established by government bodies, financial authorities, and other regulatory groups. Key aspects include adhering to know-your-customer (KYC) rules and anti-money laundering (AML) laws.

Security & Privacy

Crypto law covers the legal aspects of digital asset security, including cryptocurrencies. It also focuses on the protection of personal data, ensuring that privacy laws are followed when handling and storing personal details.


It deals with the legal side of token offerings, such as initial coin offerings (ICO’s) and security token offerings (STO’s). Crypto law includes compliance with securities laws, disclosure requirements, and investor protection regulations.


Legal considerations tied to the use of smart contracts and decentralized apps (dApps) come under crypto law. This includes contract enforcement, liability issues, intellectual property rights, and dispute resolution.


It involves protecting consumers’ rights and interests, including measures to prevent fraud, unfair practices, and ensuring transparency in cryptocurrency transactions and exchanges.


Crypto law tackles tax obligations and regulations linked to cryptocurrencies, such as reporting and taxing cryptocurrency transactions, capital gains tax, and the tax treatment of digital assets.


It deals with the legal implications and regulatory challenges associated with cross-border cryptocurrency transactions, jurisdictional issues, and international cooperation on crypto-related matters.


Finally, crypto law incorporates Regulatory Technology (RegTech). This includes the use of artificial intelligence and machine learning to streamline compliance with regulatory obligations within the crypto industry.


Have you ever wondered how crypto law came into existence? Let’s take a trip back down memory lane and explore some historical events. From the creation of the first decentralized cryptocurrency to landmark court cases and regulatory developments, these events have played a crucial role in shaping the legal framework surrounding cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology.

2009: Bitcoin

The first cryptocurrency was launched by an anonymous entity known as Satoshi Nakamoto. It was created as an alternative financial system following the 2008 financial crisis.

2013: FinCEN

 The Financial Crimes Enforcement Network of the U.S. Treasury, issued the first guidance on virtual currencies, suggesting that exchanges are subject to money transmitter laws.

2014: US VS HOM

 In this case, the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) successfully argued that cryptocurrency is property for tax purposes. The court ruled that Hom had to report his earnings from his transactions involving Bitcoin.

2014: MT. GOX

Mt. Gox was once the largest cryptocurrency exchange before its collapse. The subsequent bankruptcy case highlighted the need for improved security measures and investor protection in the cryptocurrency industry.

2015: Skatteverket

This case centered on whether Bitcoin transactions should be subject to VAT. The ECJ ruled that Bitcoin constitutes a form of currency, and as such, its exchange should be exempt from VAT.


This case highlighted use of cryptocurrencies for illicit activities by Ulbricht, the owner of the online drugs market place Silk Road.
It resulted in greater regulatory scrutiny.

2017: DAO

The 2017 DAO Report, published by the SEC, investigated whether the DAO’s token sale constituted the offering of securities under U.S. securities laws. The report concluded that DAO tokens were securities and should have been registered with the SEC. 

2020: OCC

The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) in the US clarified that national banks have the authority to provide custody services for cryptocurrencies, including holding reserve funds for stablecoin issuers.


The SEC alleged that Ripple Labs conducted an unregistered securities offering by selling XRP. This ongoing case has potentially significant implications for the classification of cryptocurrencies.

2020: SEC VS KIK

The SEC charged Kik Interactive for conducting an unregistered $100 million securities offering of digital tokens. Kik lost the case, with the court ruling that the token offering constituted a securities offering. 


An unnamed American entrepreneur who had over US$7 million in cryptocurrency stolen won a court injunction to freeze the stolen funds. This happened in Singapore and it’s a novel case showing how courts can intervene in cases of crypto theft.

2022: MICA

The European Council approved the Markets in Crypto-Assets (MiCA) Regulation. It extends to money laundering, consumer protection, the accountability of crypto companies and environmental impact.
