EU’s New AML Watchdog Spells Trouble for ‘Crypto’ Crooks

Digital currency businesses will soon face much stricter oversight in the European Union via the formation of a new cross-border regulatory body to tackle digital currency-based money laundering.

Steven Stradbrooke of writes:

"The new Anti-Money Laundering Authority (AMLA) aims to improve detection of suspicious transactions and close regulatory loopholes that allow criminals to launder their ill-gotten gains, including through the use of digital assets. Key to these aims will be enhancing cooperation among financial intelligence units (FIUs) to ensure private sector operators “correctly and consistently” apply EU rules."

The European Parliament is currently on its summer break but the plan is for its members to approve their own AML approach shortly after their return.
