“As regulators across the globe scramble to keep up with the explosive growth across the crypto asset trading ecosystem, the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) has been doing its best to lay down guidance for national regulators to follow in the hope that some level of regulatory cohesion ensues.


Although its updated guidance for treatment of Virtual Asset Service Providers (VASPs) has been pushed back to October, our expert panel joined Ian Taylor to discuss the possible outcomes and how they might impact the industry as a whole as exchange operators grapple with Travel Rule compliance and DeFi builders keep a close eye on how any new rules may affect their future roadmaps.”
