The United Kingdom’s All Party Parliament Group (APPG) has initiated a scrutinization of the country’s stance on crypto regulation. As announced, the investigation aims to gather feedback on the UK government’s attitude towards crypto.

Aside from gathering feedback through general meetings, the group intends to consult prominent actors in the sector. The APPG also aims to consult experts, firms, and other service providers to seek their input. As indicated by the group, the inquiry will end by September 2022.
The group plans to proceed by coalition with an aggregated view of this feedback. Then, propose before the appropriate authorities for deliberation. The APPG added that selected committee members from the UK treasury would address the collected feedback.
The chairperson of the group, Lisa Cameron, reflected on the inquiry. According to Cameron, Investors and regulators had shown a strong interest in the United Kingdom regarding crypto. The chairperson recalled how the number of investors and holders had skyrocketed massively in the past few years. Cameron cited this growth as a major reason the UK government must redress its position regarding crypto regulation.
The Chairperson added that global regulators are gradually reviewing crypto regulations. He claimed that the APPG would work the current regulation regarding fraudulent transactions with crypto and proffer advice for a good approach.
