Christine Lagarde Reaffirms ECB Encryption Policy as Bitcoin Becomes Legal Bidding in El Salvador – Bitcoin Regulation News

Lagarde warned last month that cryptocurrencies are prone to money laundering and have no intrinsic value. In January, she said: “It’s a highly speculative asset, which has conducted some funny business and some interesting and totally reprehensible money laundering activity.” After El Salvador passed the bill making bitcoin legal tender, the IMF said that it saw legal and economic issues regarding this move. A BIS official also commented recently that it is an “interesting experiment” but it does not change the BIS’s view on bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, insisting that BTC fails a means of payment test. What do you think about Lagarde’s comments on bitcoin? Let us know in the comments section below.

While pointing out that “the issue of having dual tender in a particular economy is a difficult one,” Lagarde confirmed: Lagarde first admitted that since she left the International Monetary Fund (IMF), she is “no longer familiar with the situation in El Salvador.” The ECB chief noted, “I know that it is a country that is under the IMF program.”

That certainly does not change our approach to crypto assets and to regulations, supervision, and proper classification that they should be under to avoid misinformation and misleading representations. ECB President Christine Lagarde has shared her view last week on El Salvador’s move to make bitcoin legal tender. The country passed a bill last week making bitcoin legal tender alongside the U.S. dollar.
