The presentation aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the factors that have prompted the need for regulating markets in crypto assets. It begins by delving into the background and rationale behind this regulatory initiative, highlighting the challenges and risks associated with the growing popularity and widespread use of cryptocurrencies.

As the presentation progresses, it goes on to provide a detailed examination of the MiCAR (Markets in Crypto-Assets Regulation) proposal. This entails a thorough exploration of the specific provisions and guidelines outlined in the proposal, illustrating how they aim to address the inherent risks and potential misconduct prevalent in the crypto asset markets.

Moreover, the presentation ventures into the practical application of the proposed regulation, particularly in relation to more novel cases. It offers real-world scenarios and examples that demonstrate how the regulatory framework can be effectively implemented to tackle emerging challenges posed by new and innovative forms of crypto assets.
