However, he also recommended that enhanced regulations should be enforced as digital currencies constantly expand.

The bank stated in a publication that there is a need to regulate cryptocurrency at a local and an international level.

Earlier in July, the bank warned against cryptocurrency spillover into traditional markets. It also said about banks, institutional investors, and payment operators’ absorption of cryptocurrency for transactions.

On the contrary, cryptocurrencies have very high volatility, and the digital currency market has dipped more than $1 trillion in market value since May 2021. Bitcoin’s price has dropped from an ATH (All-Time-High) price of almost $65,000 in April this year to about $32,000 on Wednesday this week.

Financial Regulators Issue Warnings

Regulators have been giving frequent warnings about cryptocurrency. In particular, China has banned all digital transactions, declaring them illegal.

However, Binance – the world’s biggest crypto exchange- was banned last month from the United Kingdom. Binance was among the numerous exchanges that didn’t register with the financial regulator, given that it couldn’t meet up with the anti-money laundering requirements.
