Singapore seeks to be well-positioned for crypto economy
Singapore is seeking to cement itself as a key player for cryptocurrency-related businesses by putting in place “strong regulation” to allow firms that meet their requirements and address the risks can continue to operate.
Ravi Menon, managing director of the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS), said getting into cryptocurrencies risks Singapore being left behind and that getting early gives them a head start.
He emphasized that the best approach is not to clamp down or ban cryptocurrencies and to understand their potential benefits as well as their risks.
Menon acknowledged that crypto is an investment in a prospective future, which is not clear at this point, and that financial institutions will face challenges with the decentralization of finance.
He added that they must raise safeguards in countering risks, including illicit flows.
