Share This Interview

Watch November’s Policy Updates where Riccardo Tordera, Head of Policy & Government Relations at The Payments Association talks with Andrew Whitworth, Policy Director, EMEA at Ripple. Andrew shares his views on crypto, and why it’s here to stay. He underlines the use cases in the space that are helping people and companies solve their problems, and explains that since blockchain is a technology rather than a product or service, it’s something that can be built upon for a broader range of purposes across the whole economy, not just in payments.

Andrew believes the UK Government is in a good place regarding it’s role in the innovation of crypto. He feels the Government recognises the clear benefit of having a thriving crypto asset sector in the UK. He is also impressed by the work of the UK regulators in the space and their work towards developing policy frameworks.
