A recent report by the European Union Commission, published last month, analyses the implications and avenues with which DeFi could be regulated. According to Patrick Hansen, Head of Strategy at Unstoppable Finance and widely followed for his analysis of European crypto regulation, the report shows that the officials have a good grasp on DeFi and how it works, including individual protocols. The report recognising the blunder of applying traditional financial laws to DeFi stated, “Adapting the EU financial services regulatory framework to a decentralised environment will require a rethink; and regulatory cooperation with the main jurisdictions relevant to the DeFi ecosystem might prove indispensable. To benefit from the inherent data transparency on public blockchains, the Commission announced that it would launch a pilot project on embedded supervision in 2022.” https://www.coinbureau.com/news/european-commission-looks-at-defi-regulation-in-latest-report/
