The G20 Summit signed to establish a global unified regulations framework to regulate digital transactions across the 20 economies and secure their financial ecosystem.
In the G20 summit 2023 India, New Delhi, leaders around the globe agreed to create a legal framework to regulate cryptocurrency. This will enhance security and increase transparency related to the digital assets transactions between countries. They signed the agreement to share information between countries and collaborate with each other to combat money laundering and terrorist financing. The contract signed by leaders stated, “We call for the swift implementation of the Crypto-Asset Reporting Framework (CARF) and amendments to the CRS [Common Reporting Standard]. We ask the Global Forum on Transparency and Exchange of Information for Tax Purposes to identify an appropriate and coordinated timeline to commence exchanges by relevant jurisdictions”.
The Financial Stability Board (FSB), which oversees the creation of stablecoins and digital crypto assets, has received support from the G20 leadership. These solutions will enable cryptocurrency businesses to function under a single financial regulatory agency like banks.
According to the proposed regulation in the G20 summit, crypto businesses will automatically share transaction information with authorities yearly and comply with the legal frameworks. It also included information about unregistered cryptocurrency platforms and account providers. The regulation is expected to be implemented in 2027.
It is advised that the G20 nations swiftly adopt the Crypto Asset Reporting Framework (CARF) and Common Reporting Standards (CRS), which were created to ensure global transparency about digital currency exchanges for taxes. The proposed regulations will additionally make it easier for financial watchdogs to track down shady transactions and stop money laundering and other financial crimes. In order to provide authorities in charge of tax regulation with helpful information, the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) initially introduced CARF in October 2022. The European Union already added CARF to the crypto regulation rule. Consequently, other European nations require users’ identity, account number, and blockchain address to complete cryptocurrency exchange transactions.
