The financial services Agency of Japan (FSA) may prohibit trading by an anonymous cryptocurrency in the Country of the rising sun. This publication reports the CCN with reference to an article from Forbes magazine.
As stated by a source close to the FSA, the main regulatory body of the country, which affects the activity of the cryptocurrency exchanges of Japan, plans to ban the trade Althingi sites that allow users to make anonymous transactions.
“Crypto-currencies, which are generally much harder to trace than Bitcoin, have become too closely associated with the underworld,” reads the statement of the financial services Agency of Japan.
First of all, we are talking about cryptocurrencies such as Monero (XMR), zcash for (ZEC) and Dash (Dash), which, in the opinion of the regulator, are in great demand among representatives of criminal organizations and hackers.
Is to say that to date, no official bans yet. But given the hard grip of the FSA and the establishment of the Association of crypto-currency exchanges in Japan, the regulators can come to a conclusion pretty soon. Japan wants transparency, the FSA wants controls.
