Piergiorgio Valente, 'Bitcoin and Virtual Currencies Are Real: Are Regulators Still Virtual?' (2018) 46 Intertax, Issue 6/7, pp. 541–549

Abstract

While the bitcoin is reaching all pockets and headlines, the regulatory debate is also at its peak. Following brief analysis of the blockchain mechanism, this article focuses on the regulatory approaches taken in the EU as well as in single Member States and third countries around the world. Regulatory intervention seems to be appropriate and could build on the points of convergence of national and international policy makers.
