Hong Kong Monetary Authority Plans to Bring Stablecoin-Related Activities Under Regulation

The Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA) proposes to bring certain activities relating to stablecoins into the regulatory perimeter, and indicates the expected regulatory scope and key regulatory requirements.

The HKMA received a total of 58 submissions in response to the discussion paper on crypto-assets and stablecoins from the industry, public bodies, business and professional organisations, and individuals, etc.

It is reported that the respondents were supportive of regulating stablecoins with a risk-based and agile approach. The respondents also broadly supported the need to take into account the latest market developments and draw reference from the discussion of international regulatory bodies when developing the relevant regulatory regime.
