Compliance in the world of cryptocurrency is an extremely important change to include. With the increase in crimes in the digital asset world, there is a proper need to have compliance in the different cryptocurrency exchanges.
According to the reports of crypto news for today, Coinbase has managed to take the first step towards such as change. There have been some new rules added to the cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase’s mode of function which is going to make sure that the different compliance-related issues are no longer bothering the users of crypto from this particular exchange.
Different Coinbase Users Will Have to Submit Transaction Receipts
A major move taken by the cryptocurrency exchange, Coinbase has shocked the entire world for sure. According to the new rules that have been added to the transaction system of Coinbase, some of the users of this particular crypto exchange will have to provide information regarding the transactions that they have done off-platform. This means that users who have been sending cryptocurrencies to different wallets that are not in Coinbas will have to disclose the recipient information from now on.
Citing compliance with local jurisdictions, the crypto exchange announced to soon collect additional information from users based in Canada, Singapore, and Japan. Effective from April 1, Coinbase users from Canada, Singapore, and Japan will be required to provide additional information while sending cryptocurrencies to a different (non-Coinbase) platform.
However, while Singaporean and Japanese investors will be required to share additional information about the recipient for every single off-platform transaction, Canadians sending less than $801 (1,000 CAD) will be exempted from this requirement. As shown in the above screenshot, Canadian users will need to share the full name and residential address of the recipient.
Moreover, Canadian users — that suffice the above two conditions — will lawfully require to provide the recipient’s (self) information even while transferring funds between their own crypto wallets.
On the other hand, both Japanese and Singaporean regulations will require Coinbase to collect information about the recipients from local investors for every single off-platform transaction with no minimum threshold.
Similar to Canadian users, investors from Japan will need to disclose information including the recipient’s name and full address and the name of the crypto exchange handling the wallet.
Singapore users will not require to provide the recipient’s residential address but will require only the recipient’s name and country of residence.
The lack of any required information will bar the user from sending cryptocurrencies out of the Coinbase platform for the jurisdictions in question. Coinbase users that no longer reside in these jurisdictions will need to update their country of registration in order to gain exemption from the soon-to-be-implemented rule.
For many jurisdictions, the road to mainstream crypto adoption is paved by stringent regulations under the pretext of investor protection. Starting April 2022, the Thailand Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) announced a ban on crypto payments throughout the country.
Complementing this law, the SEC also proposed a new rule, which if implemented, will require Thai-based crypto businesses — brokers, exchanges, and dealers — to disclose service quality and IT usage information.
As it has been reported by Cointelegraph, a particular joint study that took place between the Bank of Thailand or BOT and the Thai SEC made some conclusions that crypto payments have the potential to affect the stability of the entire financial system that the countries can have.
Also, these cryptocurrencies also tend to have an effect on the overall economic system of the nations and that can also include the different risks that are associated with businesses as well as people. Hence, this move by Coinbase to ensure that more information is provided about non-Coinbase recipients is definitely appreciated.
