USA: What’s the current landscape for CFTC cryptocurrency regulation?

As cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin enter the mainstream, entrepreneurs are exploring business models that may depend on compliance with regulatory constraints. This short article summarizes the cryptocurrency regulatory enforcement cases brought by the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) to date.

Australia: Bitcoin Adopters in Australia Swell Amid Regulation, Record Highs

Australian authorities have also introduced cautiously embracive legislation to accommodate bitcoin activity as a part of the country’s wider FinTech-forward agenda. Less than a month ago, the Australian government introduced a bill to remove the double taxation of transactions involving cryptocurrencies like bitcoin. Authorities vehemently stated they were “committed” to removing the double taxation in 2016, wherein bitcoin adopters had to pay the goods and services tax (GST) on the product before being taxed again for the GST levied on the digital currency used during the transaction.

Why Cryptocurrency Regulation Moves Faster in Smaller Jurisdictions

Often, smaller territories are able to effect rapid change much quicker due to independent control over legislation, relative to larger territories. This is somewhat advantageous to the promotion and establishment of crypto and blockchain within their legal jurisdictions. For example, through the laws of Switzerland’s federal states, called Cantons, there is an increased agility when making amendments or providing legal transparency that may not exist at the national level, or that of larger states in other countries.
