Mexican Lawmakers Pass Cryptocurrency Regulation Bill173.26

Lawmakers in Mexico have reportedly advanced a bill that was drafted to regulate fintech, including cryptocurrencies, in the country. According to Reuters, the bill was passed by Mexico's Chamber of Deputies, the lower house of its legislature, on Thursday and currently is pending signature from Mexico's President Enrique Pena Nieto before it goes into effect as law. The latest legislative move follows a previous green light from the country's Senate in December 2017 that cleared the way for the bill, which is aimed to bring certainty on the status of cryptocurrency, as well as to prevent use of the tech in illicit activities such as money-laundering. The bill also seeks to put the operation of cryptocurrency exchanges under oversight of the country's central bank.
