“The UK has no rule. It’s pretty opaque since you don’t know when rules are going to move in. From a consumers viewpoint, because you don’t have clarity, you don’t know which companies to trust. Regulation will truly help raise user adoption and decrease the risk. In China, people just moved onto other platforms like LocalBitcoin which are good but really, really risky. By de-risking the country, when they said we need to stop people vending cryptocurrencies, they’ve enlarged user risk.”
