Crypto Industry News:
Mark Branson, head of the Swiss financial regulator FINMA, said he was more worried about the dark corners of cryptocurrency than Facebook’s stablecoin Libra.
Reuters reported that Bronson is more distrustful of cryptographic projects that are developing outside official control than the Libra project, which he believes is “transparent.”
“I’m more worried about projects that develop somewhere in a dark corner of the financial system, spread to cyberspace and one day become too big to stop” – he added.
Branson explained that Libra will be subject to the same strict rules that apply to banks, in addition to strict anti-money laundering rules, and that Switzerland will do nothing to block the project by adding:
“We are not here to prevent such projects. We will respond to them with an open mind, with the attitude that the same risk requires the same principles. Our principles and standards are not negotiable.”
