The US risks falling further behind China in terms of crypto and blockchain adoption if it fails to implement fair
Cryptocurrency regulations have been a hot topic of debate among the community ever since digital assets came into existence.
The debate circles whether legislation on cryptocurrencies will carry positive or negative outcomes for the crypto ecosystem.
Some believe that cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin should operate on their own, without any regulatory oversight. This comes from one of their predominant and perhaps most essential features – decentralization, or the lack of central authorities. This would put the power entirely in the hands of network participants.
However, and on the other hand, there are a lot who believe that proper and well-defined regulations are a critical step towards mass adoption.
In reality, the tendency seems to be favoring the latter group. The well-known and reputable cryptocurrency companies and exchanges are doing their best to abide by the law in order to deliver further security and to avoid regulatory scrutiny.
This is especially the case in the fields of Know-Your-Customer (KYC) and Anti Money-Laundering (AML) regulations. These are welcomed with mixed feelings by the crypto community because they strip away one of the landmark feats of most cryptocurrencies – privacy.
