Crypto Industry News:
The Canadian Center for Financial Transaction Analysis and Reporting (FINTRAC) announced that it will soon implement new anti-money laundering (AML) and terrorist financing (CTF) laws. The guidelines on virtual currencies will also be updated.
In the published departmental report, FINTRAC emphasizes that establishing “improved AML / [CTF]” for cryptocurrency companies is “the main priority in the near future”.
In the FINTRAC report, it emphasizes the challenges associated with the adoption of new technologies, such as cryptocurrency, by businesses and consumers – adding that while most changes resulting from new technologies are incremental, “many of them have a revolutionary impact.”
The updated legal framework will include new reporting requirements for transactions in virtual currencies, extending FINTRAC’s regulatory mandate to better cover the activities of foreign companies operating with cryptocurrencies.
The Canadian Financial Supervisory Authority plans to conduct “extensive national consultations with stakeholders and a rigorous implementation phase”. FINTRAC adds that it hopes to work with industry representatives to consider changes to the new framework.
The new regulations, adopted in June 2019, require companies operating cryptocurrencies to register and report large amounts of identifying information from the clients whose transactions they process.
For each attempt or successful transaction or transfer in excess of $ 1000 Canadian, companies must record the type and amount of each virtual currency involved, the sending and receiving addresses involved in the transaction, the source of the virtual currency, and entities involved in the transfer.
