About us

Launched in 2018, CryptoUK is the UK’s leading association representing the interests of the cryptoasset sector:

  • Exchanges: A marketplace where traders can buy and sell cryptoassets using either fiat or alternative cryptoassets.
  • Trading platform/brokers: A service by which you can buy and trade cryptoassets at a price set by the brokerage.
  • Comparison sites: Websites which provide data to compare the different rates of cryptoassets.
  • Intermediaries: A third-party facilitator of payments and transactions.
  • Asset Managers: Facilitators of investment and trading of cryptoassets.

Our members believe in the UK’s potential to become a global leader in this sector, through the development of a supportive operating environment – including appropriate regulation.

A word on ICOs: The Association does not currently represent ICOs, but a working group is considering this issue and the potential for a specific self-regulatory framework.


    CryptoUK has been established to promote the development and recognition of digital currency technologies in the UK, and to ensure higher cross-sector standards of conduct and consumer protection.
