Crypto UK

Headland Consultancy is helping CryptoUK, the country’s new self-regulatory trade body for the cryptocurrency business, shape a regulatory framework and increase transparency.

The London-based financial/corporate PR firm will provide PA and media relations services to the new group. It will engage with UK policymakers to develop a blueprint for future cryptocurrency regulation

Toby Pellew, director at Headland, noted that cryptocurrencies are receiving increased scrutiny from politicians and regulators.

He said Healand looks forward to helping CryptoUK as it contributes to the debate, champions best practices in support of consumers and positions the UK as a leader in blockchain technology.

Coinbase, CoinShares, Coinfloor, CommerceBlock, eToro, BlockEx, CEX.IO and CryptoCompare are founding members of CryptoUK.
