  • The criteria used to classify "Asset Reference Tokens" (ART) and "E-Money Tokens" (EMT) as significant;

  • The rules governing EBA’s (European Banking Authority) sanctioning power over significant “Asset Reference Tokens” (ART) and “E-Money Tokens” (EMT) issuers;

  • Supervisory fees that may be charged by EBA to significant ART and EMT issuers;
