MFSA Issues Consultation on VFA Regulations

Malta is the first country in the world (so far) where a Consultation Paper on the Virtual Financial Assests Regulations is being issued under VFAA (Virtual Financial Assests Act). 

The Regulations are intended to supplement the provisions of the VFAA, providing further guidance to issuers of tokens (particularly those doing an Initial VFA Offering) and offering any services classified as VFA Services under the Act.

 

The Proposed Regulations set out the different licensing categories and VFA Service Licensees Fees that will be possible under the VFAA:

Licence Category

Licensable Activities

Application / Notification Fee

Supervisory Fee

VFAA Class 1

Licence holders authorised to receive and transmit orders and, or provide investment advice in relation to one or more virtual financial assets and, or the placing of virtual financial assets

 €3,000

For revenue up to €50,000 = €2,750

Further tranches of €50,000 up to a maximum of €1,000,000 = €350 per tranche or part thereof

VFAA Class 2

Licence holders authorised to provide any VFA service and to hold or control clients’ money, but not to operate a VFA exchange or deal for their own account

 €5,000

For revenue up to €250,000 = €4,500

Further tranches of €250,000 up to a maximum of €5,000,000 = €400 per tranche or part thereof

VFAA Class 3

Licence holders authorised to provide any VFA service and to hold or control clients’ money, but not to operate a VFA exchange.

 €7,000

For revenue up to €250,000 = €6,000

Further tranches of €250,000 up to a maximum of €50,000,000 = €400 per tranche or part thereof

VFAA Class 4

Licence holders authorised to operate a VFA exchange and to hold or control clients’ money, virtual financial assets and, or private cryptographic keys and custodian or nominee services solely in relation to the operation and activities of such VFA exchange

 €12,000

For revenue up to €1,000,000 = €25,000

Further tranches of €1,000,000 up to a maximum of €100,000,000 = €2,500 per tranche or part thereof

 

Rules on the control of assets

Addional requirements are being proposed when holding and/or controling clients money/assets in order to protect investors by the person/s in possesion on a VFA Service Lisense under the Act or acting under an exemption from the requirement of such a lisense under the Proposed Regulations.

The term “assets” on the other hand refers to movable and immovable property of any kind and excludes financial instruments as defined in the Second Schedule to the Investment Services Act, whether issued in Malta or not.

Administrative penalties and appeals

The proposed Legal Notice establishes that where persons falling with the scope of the Regulations fail to comply with any provision or rules issued thereunder, the MFSA as the competent authority may, by notice in writing and without recourse to a court hearing, impose on such person an administrative penalty and other administrative measures as set out in the VFAA. The authority may in such cases impose an administrative penalty up to €150,000 for each infringement or failure to comply, as the case may be. A right of appeal to the Financial Services Tribunal is also proposed.

Industry participants and interested parties are encouraged to send their feedback to the MFSA by no later than the 20th July 2018.

Affiliate event series set to return to Europe

The Affiliate Grand Slam series is all about relationship-building in the best possible environment for deal-making handshakes. Great relationships are at the very centre of the affiliate sphere in iGaming.

It is nigh on impossible to be successful in affiliation without maintaining healthy bonds with key collaborators, and forging new ones. This is especially true in iGaming, a very interdependent scene in most respects.

The Affiliate Grand Slam is an outstanding event on the iGaming calendar that brings together the best of affiliates with a select number of potential collaborators that are keen to establish or cement a great working relationship.

The next edition of Affiliate Grand Slam will take place in Kiev, Ukraine. This regional, cultural, and business centre was chosen because its ideal location – the upcoming Affiliate Grand Slam will be all about accessing the immense potential of the European and CIS markets, especially as the two converge. The fundamental formula that defined previous editions of the Affiliate Grand Slam remains: 200 elite affiliates will join a select grouping of operators, capped at six.

The event has mastered the art of introducing outstanding content, but also maxes out on the more leisurely front. There is no better setting for the creation and upkeep of crucial relationships in this sphere.

TonyBet, V.Partners, Yobetit, Multilotto and Buffalo Partners have been confirmed as hosts of this marquee event, which is also sponsored by HasTraffic.

For sponsorship opportunities contact:
denis@sigma.com.mt / laima@sigma.com.mt

iGathering21 makes waves

Pool Party makes a splash amongst industry elite this month on the 16th of June, 2018 in Malta.

Hugo’s  Infinity, a glamorous rooftop pool location in St. Julians, set the scene for an exclusive, invite-only iGathering.  The momentous event, hosted by Malta Blockchain Summit and CryptoFriends, was generously sponsored by AliQuantum Gaming and Hipay, along with partners CoinTelegraph and ICObench.

Guests were treated to an art exhibition and Blockchain Auction, before savouring gourmet barbeque and supping on freshly-made mojitos as they lounged by the pool.

Some of the most renowned iGaming-and-crypto-industry experts, enthusiasts, and investors mingled under the warm afternoon sun as cocktails flowed and business cards exchanged hands – providing just the right balance of priceless business opportunities and premier entertainment.

The lavish blockchain event also offered its VIP guests a great line-up of speakers, including keynote speaker Olaf Carlson Wee, Founder of Polychain, talks from ICO representatives and an ICO Pitch, providing a valuable experience for VIP’s hoping to build solid relationships within the Block tech sphere.

The previous iGathering, held at the beautifully-restored Magazino Hall, found success on the home front when it returned from Sweden for its 20th edition.

PlayOJO crowned Casino Operator of the Year

Disruptive challenger takes home trophy at the prestigious Malta iGaming Awards.

Fast-growing online casino operator, PlayOJO, has added more silverware to its trophy cabinet after being crowned Casino of the Year at Malta's iGaming Awards.

The operator, which is powered by popular software provider SkillOnNet, fought off stiff competition to take home the gong.

The recognition comes just weeks after PlayOJO picked up its first EGR Award – for Rising Star of the Year – at the industry bible’s prestigious Operator Awards 2017 in London.

Ohad Narkis, from PlayOJO, said: “We are delighted to have been named Casino Operator of the Year at the Malta iGaming Awards. Despite launching less than a year ago, we have already made a significant impact on the industry by taking the player experience to the next level. This award recognises the hard work and dedication of the PlayOJO team, and I’d like to thank the judges for rewarding our achievements and successes in this way.”

Since going live in February, this disruptive challenger brand, has already made a big impression in the UK market with its unique approach to responsible gambling.

Its innovative OJOplus offering rewards players with money back on every bet – whether they win or lose – which can be withdrawn into their wallet at any time.

In an industry first, all bonuses and rewards come with no wagering requirements, so what players see is what they get – it’s that simple.
