Over 40 Financial Institutions in Germany declared to the BaFin (Country’s Financial Regulator) that they are intended to offer services related to cryptocurrency under the new German Law. The institutions are intended to move forward towards the modern digital currency along with traditional financial products according to the latest news. The new German Law which came into effect in early January, allows banks to provide crypto services along with their traditional services after obtaining a license from BaFin.

The German Cash Laundering Act, which recently came into effect, is intended to benefit banks. The financial institutions visualise the cryptocurrency as the new way to attract the investments and hence submitted the expression of interest to the supervisory monetary regulatory authority of Germany.

BaFin explained about the received “Expression of Interest” from the financial institutions. The spokesperson of BaFin cleared that the expression of interest cannot be treated as an application for permission. The regulatory authority confirms that there is no provision for immediate acknowledgement of receipt or an expression of interest.

Under the new Law, digital asset custodians must be licensed by BaFin for which the intention to be licensed must be submitted before April 1, 2020, and application must be submitted before November 1, 2020.

Its good news that German banks are slowly accepting cryptocurrency as one of the currencies in Germany. I really do hope that other countries are like this too. I want crypto to work hand-in-hand with fiat so we can use it any way we like just like having a debit/credit card.
