FATF standards and digital currencies
Crypto investing is on the rise. Governments around the world start to realize that this emerging market might increase the threat of money laundering or other illegal activities. Government officials are working hard to create regulations to tackle these problems. Financial Action Task Force (FATF) created global standards on how to deal with cryptocurrencies.
The purpose of this document is to help governmental organizations to regulate the crypto currency market. FARF published this guidance in June. Countries are adopting new regulations to comply with FATF standards.
These new regulations will make it easier to detect criminal activities. Moreover, this will also make it easier for investors to safeguard their crypto assets.
