The regulator further warns investors to be cautious over any investment advice it receives from the listed companies, as they are not regulated under CNMV legislation.

“The CNMV states that these companies are not registered in the corresponding register of this Commission and, therefore, are not authorized to provide investment services or other activities subject to CNMV supervision.”

In response to heightened regulatory measures by the Spanish authority, crypto firms are refining their advertising tactics to ensure better protection and understanding of crypto investment risks among investors within the country.
