Stefan Berger, a member of the European Parliament in charge of shepherding the MiCA regulation, confirmed that the European Parliament Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs (ECON) rejected a suggestion that could ban proof-of-work consensus protocols such as Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), in the EU.

“By accepting my proposal, members have paved the way for future-oriented crypto regulation. It is now a matter of accepting the report as a whole in the final vote & sending out a strong signal for innovation,” Berger tweeted.

Other crypto industry players also confirmed the news:

At 16:08 UTC, BTC trades at USD 38,954 and is unchanged in a day, while ETH trades at USD 2,573 and is also unchanged in a day.
