Movement in the Crypto Space

Recently, the EU is preparing to change the rules for crypto policy, which could harm the market.

Now, as the European Union (EU) is set to hold another important vote that could impact crypto markets, the Coinbase CEO has spoken out against what he sees as an unsafe policy and called for a new review.

On Thursday, March 31, the EU Parliament will vote on the adoption of an amendment to the Remittance Regulation. The Coinbase CEO believes that the consequences will be catastrophic.

“The amendment to the rules would bring total surveillance on exchanges like Coinbase, curbing innovation and undermining the personal wallets they use to securely protect their digital assets,”

said Coinbase Chief Legal Officer Paul Grewal.
