The Crypto Tsar would be the official who would ensure a coordinated approach. For various government agencies to regulate this sector. And this is necessary to turn the country into a cryptocurrency hub, lawmakers say
A parliamentary group in the UK has proposed the appointment of a ‘Crypto Tsar’. And to ensure a coordinated approach by various agencies to regulate the digital currency industry. Parliamentarians say this is necessary to ensure UK leadership in the cryptocurrency industry and to protect consumers.
The Crypto & Digital assets All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) has published a report containing more than 50 recommendations to government on the industry. Among them is the appointment of an official. And that will ensure a co-ordinated approach by various government departments and agencies.
The report points to the rapid growth of the cryptocurrency market. And the fact that “this sector is now with us for the long haul”. As such, the report argues that the sector needs to be regulated to protect consumers. And the implementation of the government’s vision to make the UK a global cryptohub.
“The government should consider appointing a ‘crypto tsar’ who could help coordinate the work of various agencies to ensure a consistent approach,” the APPG report says.
The positions of regulators and other government bodies in the United Kingdom on cryptocurrencies are divergent, creating uncertainty in the market.
