The Canadian government has recently postponed once again, releasing the final cryptocurrency regulation as well as Blockchain-based companies, stating that no further update will be released to the public before the end of 2019. This decision is mainly based on the actual political context as the government is currently in pre-election mode and such moves have been put on hold.
The first reactions are divided as some companies see in this an opportunity for the industry as the Canadian government is basically leaving the door open for less strict rules than those published earlier this year in their draft. On the other side, stakeholders are worried that this further delay will affect Canada’s position on the international cryptocurrency market.
The BAC (Block Association of Canada) Executive Director, Kyle Kemper, declared: “The decision to delay the proposed regulations bodes well for the Canadian blockchain and cryptocurrency space. The government is committed to an innovation agenda and sometimes … it may be best to observe and intervene as little as possible,” saluting this way a controverted decision regarding the cryptocurrency regulation.
