France and Germany’s finance ministers have agreed to launch a joint crackdown on the cryptocurrency
This comes as Emmanuel Macron and Angela Merkel are set to launch a joint clampdown on trading cryptocurrencies.
French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire said yesterday that the two countries will make joint proposals to regulate the bitcoin cryptocurrency at the next summit of the G20 group.
The European Union has previously proposed treating cryptocurrency markets as a security threat linked to criminal laundering and terrorists.
The Aviva CEO explained: “One of the keys to sovereignty is control of currency and tax.
“Cryptocurrency interferes with both of those, so it’s inevitable there will be regulation. It is as inevitable as snow in Davos.”
