Care to share the links? Well it only makes sense as almost centralize exchanges require information for AML/KYC compliant. So I'm not surprise at all by the moved of the Australian government. And if you will closely look at the G20 outcome, this have been the main issue as well, crypto is being taken advantage by criminals like terrorist that's why there is a proposal to have a "single regulatory body" to track down everything. Remains to be seen, but I'm ok with complying with AML as I'm no criminal and terrorist.

As soon as all countries start to require registration for exchanges, which I believe is just a matter of time, then plenty of exchanges will either have to halt operations, or do what they need to do in order to comply with the law. It's basically what made Binance halt its operations in Japan, and that till they are granted the approval they have been waiting for since earlier this year. Not exactly sure why it takes so long, but reading through the latest developments in Japan and exchange registrations, the Japanese authorities seem to handle very high standards, so it's likely them expecting Binance to up its game even further, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. I like how they take everything seriously, wish more countries did that....

At least these are just new AML rules -- nothing we're not already used to seeing. Exchanges will need to register with the Australian authorities, implement KYC procedures and report suspicious transactions involving physical currency of $10,000 or more.

Australia Launches New Cryptocurrency Exchange Regulations

As soon as all countries start to require registration for exchanges, which I believe is just a matter of time, then plenty of exchanges will either have to halt operations, or do what they need to do in order to comply with the law.

The real problem I see is licensing. At least that's the problem in the US. The state-by-state MSB licensing scheme is a massive barrier to entry.

It's basically what made Binance halt its operations in Japan, and that till they are granted the approval they have been waiting for since earlier this year.

Apparently, many exchanges have operated unregistered in Japan for years. For whatever reason, they singled out Binance, maybe because they had some physical operations in Japan. I still don't see how moving to Malta changes anything unless they start prohibiting Japanese residents from trading there.

It is a very appropriate decision. Because many terrorists are using the blockchain as a medium to send/receive funds terror.

This move will ensure that Bitcoin will surely not be use in any illegal activities in the country such as Money laundering and smuggling of guns and explosives in which it will put the nation and welfare of the people at risk but also we should expect that crypto currencies volume in this nation will decrease as they strict well the exchanges transactions which means some Australian investors will now getting more difficult to join the investments

Here is the complete link of the official statement http://www.austrac.gov.au/news/digital-currency-exchange-providers-register-online-austrac

I think there is an utter and immediate need of such regulations around the world. Nice to see Australia beginning with these regulations. Now exchanges will have to register themselves with the portal created for them. They will have to comply with the guidelines mentioned by the government. This means they will be regulated at every step and now the citizens will also be able to file complaints against such exchanges. So all on all a good move by government.

I think it's very good, it's proof that cryptocurrency is getting accepted there. The government there doing that because it wants to secure the country and users from crime. It will be more complicated but a good move. Maybe there will be a tax for country so it will add cost, but I think it does not matter. Sooner or later see the development of cryptocurrency is more advanced, surely other countries will also do this.

All exchanges that use a Fiat pair are already required to obtain a work permit. Binance does not trade Fiat pairs. They didn't have a problem. But when they wanted to get registered in Japan problems arose. Therefore, they transfer their registration to Malta. In this country more loyal to the law. Perhaps Malta is the future capital of cryptocurrencies.

I would like to know more about it . Went through the depth and din;t fond some strong reference to the news so would u care sharing some proofs . Moreover , if this is true i don't think there is anything wrong about it . Governments always have to take care about the things that might harm their people and country . Atleast they are not banning cryptocurrencies exchange like every other country.

It would really be divided for sure because there are investors which do care about anonymity and others do care about security when it comes to their investment.We cant still conclude between on their ratios of between investors but possible things will be there.Its good to hear out that another country do decide to adopt crypto specially bitcoin but in a regulated way which isnt surprising because sooner or later,more countries would consider and follow this path.
