Well, to be honest, I can say that this is a good step taken by the Australian government and this will relief both the users and the Exchange websites so that they both can deal the cryptocurrency services in a much better way. I can tell you that by this way Terrorism and other fraudulent and money laundering activities will be slowed down to a big extent and they will not like to try or use it the cryptocurrency for anymore. I wish to see this kind of regulation to be levied in India too.

This step taken by the Australian Government is a wise choice. If bitcoin will still be used by money launderers, terrorist and criminals bitcoin will have a negative connotation and will be called a criminals money. With those rules being set to bitcoin and cryptocurrency exchanges , the coins and tokens in the crypto industry will be cleansed from its negative reputation. This is a good sign that Australia accepts and is willing to use cryptocurrency  in their country.
