The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) has published the responses it received to its Call for Evidence on Investment Using Virtual Currency or Distributed Ledger Technology. Our blog on the Call for Evidence is available here.

ESMA has published a total of eighteen responses, from organisations in banking; investment services; payment services; legal and accountancy; and regulated markets, exchanges and trading systems.

ESMA has said that it will consider all responses received, but it has not given any indication as to when it will do this, or what other next steps there might be.
