Historic regulation coming for bitcoin and crypto in EU. submitted by BTC-brother2018 to Bitcoin [link] [comments]

G20 Nations are colluding to “regulate” cryptocurrency internationally. This is bad for Crypto and we must do everything possible to fight it.

I personally think this is the cause of the dip, most of these articles have landed within the past week, there are examples of nearly every g20 nation planning some sort of crackdown in cooperation with other nations.

These national banks are primarily concerned on their own self preservation and relevance. They are not our friends, and the regulation will not be good for the space in any way.
It’s time to speak up and tell government leaders to keep their hands out of our crypto wallets.

Cryptocurrencies puzzle European regulators

The Swift Institute working paper “The evolution of third party payment providers and cryptocurrencies under the EU's upcoming PSD2 and AMLD4” shows that cryptocurrencies keep on growing in the wild in the European Union as regulators are struggling to understand how they work. The paper sets out to inform that “within the EU, existing research has established that the application of the E-money and Payment Services Directives to cryptocurrencies is problematic, if not downright impossible” and that “it remains unclear how such cryptocurrencies should then be qualified from the perspective of financial law.” You can point a financial innovation where it can't fit usual definitions: “from the requirement that e-money is to be issued on receipt of funds it follows that an e-money issuer cannot decide to create new e-money units at will” and that “such would therefore exempt cryptocurrencies from the scope of application of the Second E-money Directive”, as new coins are usually created without the corresponding funds. The paper also notes that the European Central Bank “sees virtual currencies as an unregulated field”. It seems that there's also an empty chapter concerning the fourth Anti-Money Laundering Directive (AMLD4) as “the original Proposal AMLD4 does not mention cryptocurrencies, or virtual currencies at large. Also the opinions issued by the European Central Bank, the European Economic and Social Committee, and the European Data Protection Supervisor do not make any reference to this issue”. So, why don't they ask some kid around here to explain them what's going on?

EU Bitcoin ATM Operators not in compliance with regulation?

I have been wondering how these Bitcoin ATM Operators are getting away with setting buy/sell limits this high, especially the no verification limits?
Example; https://coinatmradar.com/bitcoin_atm/6765/bitcoin-atm-general-bytes-amsterdam-esm-phone-house/ located within the EU - has a 3000 EUR limit for no verification (and you can simply use it multiple times)
How can a machine like that be in compliance with measures from Directive (EU) 2015/847 & Directive (EU) 2015/849? (847 clearly mentiones 1000 EUR without being linked as the maximum value to be transfered for a transaction) I am not a laywer, but hopefully somebody here can explain to me how this is 'legal'/'allowed' :)

CME's Bitcoin index provider becomes first regulated Bitcoin benchmark administrator in the EU
source article
announcement
The Bitcoin index provider for CME, CF Benchmarks, is now licensed to be a benchmark administrator in the EU. After their full roll-out on January 1st, 2020, anyone in the EU can use their indices for any financial products.
This will probably make other large traditional secondary markets in the EU jump onto the Bitcoin wagon like NASDAQ did a few years ago.
