France to Ban Anonymous Cryptocurrencies
Eric Woerth, head of the Finance Committee of France’s National Assembly suggests banning anonymous cryptocurrencies or the so-called privacy coins. In a recent report, Woerth expresses his position on crypto assets and on the whole blockchain technology.
Furthermore, Woerth considers the introduction of banning digital currencies with greater anonymity on users. He states: “It would also have been appropriate to propose a ban on the dissemination and trade in [cryptocurrencies built] to ensure complete anonymity by preventing any identification procedure by design. […] This is the case for a certain number of [cryptocurrencies] (Monero, PIVX, DeepOnion, Zcash…) whose purpose is to bypass any possibility of identifying the holders. To date, regulation has not gone that far.”
In addition, Woerth notes various possible problems in connection with cryptocurrencies. That includes fraud, money laundering, energy consumption, and tax evasion. Woerth also added, “The distinction between the different uses of [cryptocurrencies] must continue, to establish a finer and more precise regulation protector of the general interest, as well as the private interest of the entrepreneurs of this domain.”
