Abstract

Crypto assets can be designed in many different ways and used by very heterogeneous actors in a variety of business models. Accordingly, it must be assessed on a case-by-case basis whether they fall within the scope of various fields of Swiss law, e.g. private law, financial market law, insolvency law or anti-money laundering law. Insofar as they prove relevant to crypto assets in Switzerland, selected aspects of these legal areas are discussed, accompanied by references to potential case law.

Keywords: Crypto Assets, Law, Switzerland, Financial Market Law, Insolvency, Aml
