This is quite interesting how the EU are doing it. They are making out as though they are just wanting to step in and regulate crowdfunding websites but if you dig a bit deeper it actually shows they want to regulate anything where finance is being raised. This would greatly change the face of Crypto EU wide.

There's nothing interesting about it. All States fear an uncontrolled crowdfunding market. This can significantly change the world order. If before the inventor invented the engine for the car that runs on water. For the production of such engines need to be certified and build a plant. A lot of money. Where to take them? Corporations are buying the rights to these inventions and destroy them. Why do they need additional costs? Crowdfunding allows you to find such money from ordinary people from around the world. That's what they fear.

Eventually we know its going to happen and they are not to be blamed even though they are the are doing this for their own selfish interest based on the quest to control virtually everything of human lives. The major and minor players are also not helping matters which then justify the reason for their own actions.

For the major players they make money not because they are intelligent but because they are smart which is not bad on it's own but flaunting it all over makes those who work smarter lazy set of people then government will find an excuse to enter the market in other to maintain social order.

To the players that are morally bankrupt, they decide to use the community as a way to get rich quick by scamming people of their resources and hiding under the anonymity factor which is being exploited while others use it as a means to fund a nonexistent project in form of ICOs and a whole lot of anomaly in the system. How won't government set in.

If there’s blood the leeches follow. Where’s money, the government regulates it. There are mandated by the people that they represent to do it, self interest or not, we are obliged or the members of eu and it’s people have to abide by it. If the counsel feels the need for regulation for security and progress of its financial responsibility then they have to. For what extent, leave the privacy of each crypto user secure.

The reality is that the power to regulate really belong to the state not unless we start a good revolution that can overthrow the government and which I know nobody does really care about it. Cryptocurrency will be facing the regulatory power of the government otherwise the other option is what China did last year. However, am still enthusiastic that after all the dust is settled cryptocurrency will survive and flourish under the new environment established by the government. We can use the framework of regulations as a vehicle to bring the cryptocurrency into the future and from there on argue for its deregulation.

It all depends on our actions. Many users are ready to bow to governments to approve the use of cryptocurrencies. They are ready for everything in order to get free access Fiat. How can you make a revolution with such moods? It may take a long time for consensus to exist within the community. People need to understand that if we defend our freedom, life will be better. Killing bitcoin is easy but it will be very difficult to restore trust in it.

Regulation can also have a negative impact on cryptomarket specially when the regulating body against cryptocurrency, and don’t implement the regulation well. Although this is a good move by bigger counties but I do hope for more transfarent regulations.

The EU is ready to regulate cryptocurrency if the risks from this sector are not addressed at the global level. The doubling of global investment in bitcoin and other virtual currencies last year has seen wild eclipses in their valuations, generating many benefits for some investors while others have lost much.

How transparent do you need the regulations to be? It's clear already that everything they come up with in the coming years, will be something that plays out in their own advantage, and not the one from crypto.

The best possible execution of regulations is something we have seen happen in Japan. The only downside for investors is that in case their profits exceed $365,000 in their own currency, they'll be subject to a 55% tax rate.

It's insanely steep, but that hasn't scared off any investors at all based on how the demand and volumes there keep growing. Whatever we say or think about regulations, they'll be implemented anyway, so we better deal with it.

That's what a basic regulation does. EU is not doing anything differently. Every government wants to regulated anything where funds are being raised and also to increase the tax income. Also I wholeheartedly support if EU will bring some regulations on the ICOs. That is very much needed. Majority of the ICOS are scam and run by a college kind in disguise of a professional looking website. We need to cut such craps down from the crypto market to bring back the credibility. If the scammers can roam free, ICO market will soon become similar to HYIP market and the entire crypto currency industry will loose the faith of common investors like you and me.

Of course, they will need to regulate it. My fear is that as always they will do it in their favor.
I have nothing against paying taxes, but the EU will put its claws on its part.

These are just basic guidelines...Not the real crypto regulation. There are no Steps taken on ICO's or on crowdfunding. Most of the Scams are with ICO's so there should be some guidelines to stop Scam ICO's.

   Crowdfunding may be dangerous for governments no doubt, it may become a spawnhost of uncontrolled technologies and phenomenons. EU rushes to take it under control, wants to make crypto market clearly seen.
   Germany, as locomotive of EU, makes first step by confessing bitcoin as a mean of payment. However it will not be taxed for first time, but who knows maybe next step will be prohibition of anonimous transactions

The European Union, like other states, will in any case regulate the crypto currency. It's unavoidable. However, regulation can be different. Including brought to the point of absurdity. Recently, the German government stated that it recognizes crypto currency as a legitimate means of payment. This decision was made by implementing a specific decision of the European Court of Human Rights in 2015. Considering that for all states that signed the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms of Man of 1950, a specific decision of the European Court is mandatory, that is, they are obliged to change their national legislation to the specific decisions of this court, I hope that all these states (and their 41 state) will make a similar decision. This decision of the European Court is also interesting because it obliges these states to levy taxes for converting the crypto currency into fiat and vice versa.

Germany a few days ago stated it is not going to tax when
used as a means of payment.

https://www.coindesk.com/germany-considers-crypto-legal-equivalent-to-fiat-for-tax-purposes/

I can imagine though that the EU will be looking to regulate
the industry in some way, it will be labelled as something
which will protect the general public.

There are other positive movements like Spain looking to
create a Crypto technology hub and attract Crypto business.

Yes, regulation is always best because there are many fake ICO's without any innovative they are launching, if they start legalising at least we can easily control those ICO and governments can easily secure the investors from those ICO's. This is the best major step governments should take because every ICO should follow their guidelines.

Regulations come in different forms and sizes. We are yet to clearly know what type of regulations would be put in place. If its the type that is geared at having the government control crypto totally, then I am not going to back that, and so will many in the crypto community - as this is one of the major reasons we currently support crypto. However, if it is regulations which is to stop scams with ICOs and ensure crowdfunding is going into legit projects and such, I think we should welcome this almost immediately. One of the negative things people bash bitcon and other crypto is the scam accusations, an they are legit.

The European Union is not a state. It's a UNION!

Recently, the German government stated that it recognizes crypto currency as a legitimate means of payment. This decision was made by implementing a specific decision of the European Court of Human Rights in 2015.

What does the Human Right have to do with crypto payments?
It was a decision from the European Union Court of Justice which involved VAT taxation!!!

Considering that for all states that signed the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms of Man of 1950, a specific decision of the European Court is mandatory, that is, they are obliged to change their national legislation to the specific decisions of this court,

Again , first it was signed in 1953, it has nothing to do with cryptos and it is not mandatory, any country can just leave the pact. Besides that is the European court, it has NOTHING to do with the European Union.

, I hope that all these states (and their 41 state) will make a similar decision. This decision of the European Court is also interesting because it obliges these states to levy taxes for converting the crypto currency into fiat and vice versa.

There are 28 states in the EU not 41.

Uhmm, I think you got it all wrong dude. Pending patents or majority of the intellectual properties of any citizens of that country needs to be protected by the state, and almost majority of  any countries' government  are required by their constitution to do so. And that includes funding the creator to its financial needs. Now in cryptocurrencies I don't think it will be supported by the government as its not considered as intellectual property.
