…Who’s down

Russia’s failed attempt to regulate… The proposed ‘digital assets’ law aims to “legalize ICOs” in Russia and is expected to be reviewed in May. If this law passes, then Russia’s central bank will have the sole power to decide which digital assets can be bought by unaccredited investors. To become accredited, an individual must be in possession of assets valued at over 10 million rubles ($150,000 USD).

Mexico Wont Pay For It… The US White House is reportedly planning to target remittance payments to fund the US/Mexico border wall in the form of a remittance tax. If passed, those changes may push immigrants to use alternative channels to transfer needed funds, such as Bitcoin. According to one report, 2018 saw a total of around $33 billion sent in remittances from the US to Mexico. Moreover, this is one of the largest sources of foreign capital in Mexico. Remittances from the US to Mexico are already fined at around 5%.

Takeaways: Laws that are anti-crypto will force crypto startups to move to friendlier jurisdictions such as Malta or Switzerland. Mexico and other countries that are exposed to the remittance ripoff will find alternative to sending money back home such as the use of cryptocurrency or mailing cash.
