INTERSHORES I The British Virgin Islands Virtual Assets Service Providers Act, 2022

The rapid rise and popularity of virtual assets has created a real challenge where regulation has struggled to keep pace whilst many people hold virtual assets.   The BVI is one of the leading jurisdictions for the establishment of virtual asset legal structures over recent years.  The BVI Virtual Assets Service Providers Act, 2022 (the "VASP Act") was enacted on 29 December 2022, demonstrating the government’s commitment to the virtual asset sector.


In the Act, the following has been addressed:

1. Clear definition of virtual assets, virtual assets services, virtual assets services providers, virtual assets custody service and virtual assets exchange.


2. Regulatory requirements in provision of “virtual assets service”.


3. Transitional arrangement.
