The European Central Bank (ECB) indicated that this year the main topic at the G20 Summit will be the control over cryptocurrencies. The Summit will take place in Buenos Aires in March.
During the meeting at the World Economic Forum in 2018 in Davos, a member of the ECB’s Council, Benoit Coeure pointed out that French Economy Minister Brune Le Mair is planning to make bitcoin the main topic in this forum.
Recently, Brune Le Mair stated about the desire to regulate Bitcoin on a legal level and to discuss everything on the G20 forum.
British Prime Minister Theresa May and US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin believe that it is necessary to act jointly in regulating cryptocurrency. Politician John Kerry noted that technology has a certain value, so interest in it in the future will only grow.
At the same time, the head of the central bank of Sweden said that there is no need to strengthen control over cryptocurrencies, they “do not correspond to the definition of money.”
