Bitcoin Regulation

Bitcoin regulation has been a hot potato recently. Not a day goes by when news does not emerge somewhere in the world of new regulations being brought in. Crypto is such a new industry that governments are scrambling to keep up. The massive ICO boom of 2017 and 2018 led to a lot of bad actors entering the scene which has put the entire ecosystem in the spot light for regulators.

Bitcoin regulation is not a bad thing, it is necessary to protect traders and investors from bad actors though governments will often use this as an excuse to clamp down on crypto companies. The nations of Asia appear to be further ahead with bitcoin regulation with Japan and Singapore leading the way. The US has procrastinated thus far but moves are afoot to accelerate the process as institutional interest increases and new bitcoin investment products await regulatory approval.

At Bitcoinist we have access to the latest news and updates on regulation efforts around the world as nations either warm to crypto or decide to prevent their people using it.
