FATF’s (Final) Crypto Guidance
About This Webinar
In March 2021, the global Financial Action Task Force (FATF), released draft guidance on a “Risk-Based Approach to Virtual Assets and Virtual Asset Providers.” The draft guidance hit on crypto’s hottest topics, from non-fungible tokens (NFTs) to unhosted wallets and decentralized finance (DeFi), and came with a period of public consultation during which FATF received comments from across the cryptoverse. After 6-months of public and private sector consultation, FATF released its final guidance on Thursday, October 28.
As the dust begins to settle, join TRM Talks for a conversation with FATF’s Virtual Asset Contact Group (VACG) co-chairs: Jon Fishman of the United States Treasury Department and Habuchi Takahide of Japan’s Financial Services Agency.
About FATF: The Financial Action Task Force (FATF) began in 1989 as an 11-member global task force to tackle cartels engaged in sophisticated money laundering typologies in order to clean illicit drug proceeds. As the world focused on global terror after 9/11, FATF added terrorist financing to its mandate. As the world, and illicit actors, have moved to the digital space, FATF, now 38 nations strong, has set its sights on preventing money laundering in cryptocurrency.
