France to welcome Crypto currencies

The France’s central bank’s ex-deputy governor is to lead a task force to examine how to regulate crypto currency in the country.

‘We Want a Stable Economy’

As local media reports, Jean-Pierre Landau will look into “directions for regulatory development” regarding crypto currency.

Minister for the Economy Bruno Le Maire announced this action, who in a press conference Monday morning restated previous commitments to raising the topic of Bitcoin at the upcoming G20 Summit in Argentina.

“We want a stable economy,” Minister for the Economy Bruno Le Maire.

We will not allow hypothetical risks and possible financial deceit linked to Bitcoin.

Other than examining paths to directive, Landau’s task force will thus also aim to “better control the evolution and block the use of crypto currencies for tax evasion, money laundering and financing criminal or terrorist activities.”

To the bitcoin popularity France has conventionally adopted a comparatively inactive approach, in plain contrast to the benevolent landscape in nearby Holland and the equally difficult one in neighboring Germany.

Le Maire first made calls for Bitcoin to become a topic of debate at March’s summit in Buenos Aires last month, suggesting an international regulatory effort was required.

For his part, Landau, is meanwhile an obvious choice for task force chief, having written about his suspicion towards Bitcoin in early months of 2016.

Bitcoin is “the tulip of the 21st century,” adding that “a good currency should retain its value over long periods.” he said.

 

However, France has recently gestured its interest in accepting a hands-on position with Block-chain, even in more non-traditional settings.

Commenting on a decision in December to allow Block-chain-based trading of unlisted securities, Le Maire said it would increase the country’s “attractiveness as a financial center.”

Moreover he added that “The use of this new technology will allow fintech firms and other financial actors to develop new ways of trading securities that are faster, cheaper, more transparent and safer,”.

Switzerland is on the right track to become a Crypto nation and country is making efforts to allow cryptcocurrencies to fully access conventional banking .

Bitcoin and other crypto currencies has taken a big hit in brutal bear market of 2018 but that’s not stopping Switzerland to allow cryptocurrencies to fully access conventional banking system within the country. Switzerland is currently in progress and drafting rules and regulations for such collaborations.

Heinz Tännler, Swiss expert & finance director of Zug canton, told media earlier that politicians were moving to allow crypto companies to work with banks, adding that Switzerland’s central bank, financial supervisor and federal government “are willing to help”.

He said: “We hope to clarify relationships by the end of the year at the latest.

“Time is pressing, other jurisdictions such as Malta and Singapore are very active and making a lot of effort to attract these companies. The lack of access to bank services is a significant competitive disadvantage.”

“We have to push certain national institutions to resolve this problem quickly and effectively, but that now seems to be going well.”

Blockchain becoming the global phenomenon 

The concept of Blockchain is interesting and attractive for all the countries, many countries may disagree on the existence and usage of cryptocurrencies, but all of them agree with the fact concept of blockchain is not going anywhere and governments can benefit from this technology in various fields, but if you ask any expert of blockchain, he would tell you that success of Blockchain technology has to be linked with existence of crypto currencies, without crypto currencies, and ecosystem can’t exist, many governments around the world are slowly recognizing the fact and Switzerland is definitely on the right track if they allow crypto currencies to work in collaboration with the Banks, because many banks around the world are not allowing crypto currencies to offer services through them, but this initiative will open many doors in that regards.
