The article, published August 12, 2022, looks at proposed legislation in the U.S. Senate and House aimed at “preventing the use of cryptocurrency in illicit finance” and “developing ‘principles-based guidance’ on how anti-money laundering, sanctions and cybersecurity rules apply to cryptocurrency,” among other goals.
