      1. The President of the European Central Bank (ECB), Christine Lagarde has expressed some concerns about Bitcoin‘s anonymous nature and the cryptocurrency’s troubled past – in her words, it has been used for some “funny business”.

      Lagarde has once again called for regulation, following her previous statement on stablecoins. This time the president turns her attention towards Bitcoin – stating the dire need for regulation of the sector. And although some policies have been implemented – brokers that accept Bitcoin deposits generally follow strict Anti-Money Laundering procedures, Lagarde does not see this as enough. She states that “There has to be regulation. This has to be applied and agreed upon at a global level because if there is an escape that escape will be used”.
