Clear Junction joins UK Cryptoasset Business Council

Friday 1 March 2024 15:07 CET | News

Payments solutions provider Clear Junction has joined the UK Cryptoasset Business Council to support the growth of the cryptocurrency sector.


The UKCBC is an advocate for the UK's crypto and Web3 ecosystem, engaging with policymakers and regulators to promote collaboration and best practices within the industry. By supporting connections and facilitating knowledge sharing, the council aims to support innovation and growth in the crypto sector through effective policy. 

Clear Junction's decision to join the UKCBC coincides with a significant period of acceptance for crypto in mainstream finance. According to the official press release, regulatory frameworks such as the EU's MiCA and the approval of spot Bitcoin ETFs by the US Securities and Exchange Commission reflect growing institutional and consumer interest in crypto. Projections by the Boston Consulting Group suggest a substantial increase in cryptocurrency users by 2027, with institutions exploring the potential of stablecoins for various use cases. 

Official representatives from Clear Junction expressed enthusiasm about contributing expertise to the council to advance the UK crypto sector and ensure consumer and business protection through informed regulations. Representatives from UKCBC welcomed Clear Junction's membership, highlighting its commitment to collaboration and advocacy for clear regulations. They emphasised the benefits of Clear Junction's expertise in shaping effective regulations to benefit consumers and businesses.
