Following the latest local reports from the Philippines coming into our latest cryptocurrency news, the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) approved three new crypto exchanges.
The central bank of the Philippines wants to prove that it is one of the friendliest crypto-hubs in the world since the number of total approved crypto exchanges reached 10. The Local Manila Times reported:
“Melchor Plabasan, officer-in-charge at the Technology Risk and Innovation Supervision Department of the central bank, said newly approved were Bexpress Inc., Coinville Phils. Inc., and ABA Global Phils. Inc.”
As previously reported in July 2918, the government-operated Cagayan Economic Zone Authority issued approximately 24 licenses for the crypto exchanges which actually increased the bar to 34. The economic zone in the Northern part of the Philippines issued its own licenses once again proving to be in step with the blockchain technology developments.
Over the years, the country became a powerhouse for the crypto businesses because of the friendly regulations and the interest from the small and local companies. For example, the largest crypto exchange in Southeast Asia Coins.ph reportedly has 1 out of 10 Filipino adult users. The CEO of Pantera Capital Dan Morehead who is the first investor in Coins.ph stated:
‘’A week or so ago, we announced that we sold Coins.ph in the Philippines and I think that is a great example of Bitcoin’s actual usage now and not 20 years from now. They have one out of ten adults in the Philippines as a customer. That’s very real. I think it is important for the community to really know that there are applications that are working right now.’’
The Filipino model of approving crypto exchanges resembles the one of Japan. The Financial Services Agency (FSA) and the rest of the authorities in Japan introduced a national licensing program. The agency manually approves all of the exchanges that operate on the market. The process for approving the exchanges starts by filtering the companies with weak infrastructure in order to make sure to protect the funds.
This approach towards regulating the crypto industry in the Philippines is a good way to facilitate the growth of the crypto sector.
