CRYPTOCURRENCY, CRIME AND THE REGULATORY LANDSCAPE
With a focus on risk management, transparency and the reduction of financial crime, crypto companies have been confronted in recent years with increasingly stringent laws and regulations in the area of Customer Due Diligence and Know Your Customer. European directives set stricter requirements for conducting Customer Due Diligence, aimed at ensuring the integrity of the business.
