New European MiCA rules

Despite the proposed design and values, market dynamics, manipulations and fluctuations have exposed stablecoins to vulnerabilities that affect their stability. With the implementation of the new Markets in Crypto-Assets Regulation (MiCA) rules approaching, trading platforms like Binance are organizing to migrate European users from unauthorized stablecoins to others that are regulated.

The need for clear regulation for stablecoins is recognized as essential for the future of the sector. However, there is still uncertainty regarding determining which stablecoins meet the requirements established by MiCA.

In this context, Binance’s strategy of only allowing the sale of unauthorized stablecoins reflects a cautious stance while the regulatory review continues.
