Regulatory Developments in Financial Services

The volume of Brazilian cryptocurrency trading has exploded with Brazilians acquiring consistently US$350 million in bitcoin each month and over US$4 billion year-to-date in 2021. With the adoption of bitcoin as the official currency of El Salvador, Brazilian authorities are looking at cryptos with increasing scrutiny.
