Financial Action Task Force ("FATF") Issues Guidance for a Risk-Based Approach to Virtual Currencies
On June 2015, the Financial Action Task Force issued guidance for a risk-based approach to virtual currencies. Rapid development, increasing functionality, growing adoption and global nature of virtual currency payment products and services make national actions to identify and mitigate the money laundering risks and terrorism funding risks a priority. This EIA explores the FATF guidance on this risk-based approach to virtual currencies.
