The first edition of the Virtual Currency Regulation Law Review is intended to provide a practical, business-focused analysis of recent legal and regulatory changes and developments, and of their effects, and to look forward at expected trends in the area of virtual currencies on a country-by-country basis.

It is not intended to be an exhaustive guide to the regulation of virtual currencies globally or in any of the included jurisdictions. Instead, for each jurisdiction, the authors have endeavoured to provide a sufficient overview for the reader to understand the current legal and regulatory environment.

In the Belgian Chapter of this Review, Michiel Van Roey (former Lawyer in the IP/TMT department at Stibbe) and Louis Bidaine (former summer associate at Stibbe’s IP/TMT department) shed light on the legal framework in Belgium that applies to virtual currencies, taking into account financial securities and investment laws, legislation in relation to e-money, payment services, anti-money laundering, taxation and criminal law, as well as the Belgian legal framework that applies to the several virtual currency market participants. 

The Virtual Currency Regulation Law Review is an international publication published by The Law Reviews. This review is focused on developments and trends in the in the area of virtual currencies.
