Headland has been appointed to provide public affairs and media relations services to CryptoUK – the UK’s first self-regulatory trade body for the cryptocurrency industry.
Having already supported some of the industry’s leading members in establishing the trade body, Headland will now work with them to engage with politicians and regulators about future regulation and the potential for this exciting new technology in the UK.
This will include developing CryptoUK’s Code of Conduct as a blue print for a future regulatory framework.
Founding members of CryptoUK include: BlockEx; CEX.IO; Coinbase; CoinShares; Coinfloor; CommerceBlock; CryptoCompare; and eToro.
Toby Pellew, Director at Headland, said: “Cryptocurrencies are an incredibly topical area of policy discussion – one which is seeing increasing levels of scrutiny amongst regulators and politicians.
“We’re therefore delighted to have been chosen to support CryptoUK in developing their industry contribution to this debate, as they seek to champion best practice in support of consumers and position the UK as a leader for this exciting blockchain technology.
