According to Payment Week, the U.K. government’s Cryptoassets Taskforce released a report to coincide with the 10th anniversary of bitcoin. Nigel Green, founder and CEO of the international financial consultancy deVere Group, says that cryptocurrencies are the money of the future. “This is evidenced by Bitcoin, the world’s first cryptocurrency turning 10, and by more and more governments, regulators, financial institutions, and retail and institutional investors, amongst others, appreciating the real and growing demand for digital, global currencies in today’s ever more digitalized and globalized world.” He adds that the task force’s report has a “proactive and pragmatic approach towards regulation of the burgeoning sector [that] should be championed.”
