This week, the German Ministry of Finance announced the Future Financing Act. The new legislation will open the door for the issuance of “crypto shares” on a regulatory basis. Furthermore, the act seeks to integrate regulations from corporate law, capital markets, and tax laws.

Public companies will now be able to choose whether to issue their stock as traditional or electronic shares. These electronic shares can be registered in a central register or on a blockchain, resulting in the creation of “crypto shares.” It did not, however, go into detail about the digital shares and securities or what ledger they would be based on.

Minister of Finance Christian Lindner said:

“We want to make Germany the leading location for start-ups and growth companies. That is why we are improving access to the capital market and making it easier to raise equity. Small and medium-sized companies will also benefit from this.”

Germany a leading Crypto-friendly Nation

As per Coincub’s Q1 2022 Global Crypto ranking, Germany had surpassed Singapore as the most crypto-friendly country in the world.

It made a ground-breaking decision to include crypto investments in its massive domestic savings industry. The country has a distinct institutional stance on cryptocurrency. Cryptocurrencies are accepted as a long-term investment in Germany.

Aside from the U.S., the country has the most Bitcoin nodes, but with a smaller population and GDP, it shows an even stronger commitment to crypto. Earlier in 2022, the Federal Financial Supervisory Authority granted Coinbase’s German subsidiary a crypto custody business license.

Deutsche Boerse, the German stock exchange operator, has also listed more than 20 crypto exchange-traded products on its digital exchange Xetra. The Sparkasse savings bank’s interest in providing crypto wallets is another significant step towards institutional acceptance.
