Gemini Europe Hires A New Chief Compliance Officer For Expansion
“The concept of thoughtful regulation itself was first developed out of the lessons learned in these [E.U. and U.K.] markets over centuries. Our ethos — to ask permission, not forgiveness — was a first in the crypto industry and both honors and continues to build on Europe and the UK’s tradition of thoughtful regulation,” Cameron Winklevoss said in a blog post in December 2019.At the time, one senior Gemini executive also noted that the firm believes crypto investors "deserve the exact same protections" and standards as people in traditional markets.

Deutsche Bank Researchers: Crypto Won’t Kill Cash Soon
“Cash is unlikely to disappear anytime soon. However, a real digital payment revolution has been underway for the past ten years. Cash is losing ground as a payment method. Several countries have recently removed large notes worth $100 or more and implemented policies to replace traditional payment methods with digital solutions.”In Asia, electronic payments are the norm, gaining this status only in recent years, with platforms like Alipay and WeChat pay experiencing massive transaction numbers. For the Peoples Republic of China, the war on cash is coinciding with the efforts of the government in Beijing to gain more surveillance and bigger control of the financial dealings of its population.As it was reported in a previous occasion by DC Forecast, other nations like Malaysia and Australia are set to limit cash transactions. According to the report, the drives for decreasing cash payments by various states have the aim to take out of circulation large currency notes which are supposedly used widely for black market deals.But Deutsche Bank researchers claim that the end for cash is not in the near future as few reports show people still prefer to have cash as a security instrument in the eyes of expanding uncertainties and dangers in the financial and political world. It appears that even billionaires like Warren Buffet are increasing their cash holdings. Reports emerged in the second half of 2019 that Berkshire Hathaway which is owned by Buffet, is sitting on a $128 billion cash pile, the largest cash bucket the company ever had since before the 2008 crash. While rejecting the argument of cryptocurrency surpassing cash, the Deutsche Bank report claimed that private digital currencies pose certain risks to global financial and political stability. After the publication of Libra, the digital currency of Facebook, few governments started to consider the creation of their own central bank digital currencies (CBDCs).
