Up till now, EU-based crypto-exchanges have been unregulated. However, from January 2020, based on the 5th AML directive (EU), all crypto-exchanges and custodian wallet providers will have to comply with new stricter requirements, such as AML (anti-money laundering) and KYC (know your customer) procedures for their users. While many in the blockchain community consider any regulations unfavourable, at New Capital we are strongly of the opinion that in order for this industry to be massively accepted and for crypto-assets to become an integral part of our everyday lives, more formal procedures and structures must be in place to protect all participants, including end-users, institutions and service providers.

The announcement of these regulations has already caused a number of smaller crypto-exchanges to inform their users of pending service closures due to their unwillingness to adhere to and bear the costs of full compliance. We see the closing of these crypto-exchanges as an opportunity for those committed exchanges with a large future vision to provide continuity, and to host these projects and their communities.

For New Capital, an EU-based incubator, these regulations do not come as a surprise, and the Community Exchange will be ready to implement the required procedures by January 2020.


Up till now, the Community Exchange has only hosted projects supported by New Capital. We now welcome other projects and their communities to join our vision of building the Internet of Value together.
