Taiwan has been showing its concern about the use of cryptocurrencies. The country has given a warning to citizens about the high risks of the industry. Last year, the country attached new regulations addressing crypto in the Anti-Money Laundering (AML). Though, financial regulator is still looking for more rules to ensure the country is safe to operate in the crypto world.
A few weeks ago, FSC mentioned that digital assets are subjects of high risks, and the industry could be unstable. The financial regulator has stated the need for a proper monitoring system to make it more efficient.
These new regulations are adding concern as the crypto world can move ups and downs based on the market situation.
