Topics of discussion: 
- An overview of Portuguese securities and financial instrument regulation
- Short overview of CMVM / Bank of Portugal mandate under MiCAr
- Timeline for MiCA implementation
- Reporting requirements for firms engaged in trading of crypto assets
- Interaction between MiCA and MiFID regimes
