According to news on December 26, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) is still concerned about cryptocurrencies, especially because the market is growing at such a significant rate, and regulators have not increased it. According to data collected by the IMF, in September this year, the total market value of all cryptocurrency assets has exceeded US$2 trillion, a 10-fold increase from the beginning of 2020.
Evan Papageorgiou, IMF’s vice president of global market monitoring and analysis, said in October: “The crypto ecosystem has grown significantly. This process has shown extraordinary resilience, but there have been some interesting stress tests. The IMF wants to emphasize One problem is that many individuals and financial institutions trading these encrypted assets “lack strong operations, governance, and risk practices.
The IMF believes that national regulatory agencies should work hard to formulate universal rules and strengthen cross-border supervision; in addition, this is such a new field, and national regulatory agencies should promote data standardization. Time is of the essence. Actions on a global scale must be decisive, swift, and coordinated to maintain the flow of the market while also addressing loopholes.
