nThe law currently being enacted by parliamentarians is to provide protection for these currencies so that they can be prevented from being used by terrorists, drug traffickers and other persons engaged in illegal business activities when they meet certain minimum conditions.

nn”This is a very complicated problem, and the staff is studying the problems that have prevented alternative currency issuance in the past.”n

nn”There is a need to modify the law to protect the digital currency from the federal government, thereby ensuring that the compliance currency can be supported by value, that the currency can not be regarded as securities or investment, and that the transfer of funds is also exempt from taxation, and most importantly, Eliminate all obstacles to the realization of vibrant digital currency, and these currencies will spontaneously prevent criminals from using them.n
