The Basel Committee on Banking Supervision believes financial regulators should reconsider their policy towards the cryptocurrency market.

Credit institutions representing the traditional market should be allowed to work with digital assets. If states limit the banking sector’s capabilities in this area, the process of introducing innovations and developing fintech will slow down.
