According to a senior watchdog official, global market regulators are likely to form a joint body within the next year. This will help better co-ordinate the rules of cryptocurrencies.
“Alongside COVID-19 and climate change, the boom in digital currencies like bitcoin is one of the three main current areas of focus of the authorities,” said Ashley Alder, chairman of the International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO).
He stated cyber security, operational resilience and lack of transparency in the cryptocurrency world as the key risks that regulators are lagging behind on. Focus on crypto markets has regained it’s intensity this week amid more wild volatility that has long-alarmed the watchdogs.
