Chile’s Minister of Finance Felipe Larrain claims that a group of state institutions “is making progress” in developing crypto regulation.
According to Larrain, the Ministry of Finance is working with Chile’s central bank and Financial Stability Board to provide a balanced legal framework for the crypto industry. In March, following the closure of crypto-business accounts in major Chilean banks, Larrain promised to develop a legal framework to normalize the situation.
Larrain’s recent statement comes shortly after a Chilean Supreme Court decision, annulled a previous ruling by an anti-monopoly court to protect local crypto exchange to reopen its banking accounts.which have been involved in a legal battle since March, assure that their banking accounts will not be affected, as the anti-monopoly court’s decision is still in force.
