IMF Chief Says that Cryptocurrency Regulation is “Inevitable”

February 12

We have reported often on statements by various governments concerning cryptocurrency regulation.  Most recently  In an interview with CNN over the weekend, IMF Chief (and former Chairman of our law firm) Christine Lagarde said that such regulation is “inevitable.”  She noted that that there is probably quite a bit of dark activity [in cryptocurrencies] and that the IMF remains focused on anti-money laundering and countering the financing of terrorism, both of which are implicated in cryptocurrencies.
