The International Basel Committee on Banking Supervision issued a warning to banking organizations about the risks associated with the use of cryptocurrency assets. The committee noted that the cryptocurrency industry could potentially increase risks to financial stability and banking risks. According to representatives of the organization, cryptocurrencies do not reliably provide standard money functions. In addition, the committee is concerned about the security of cryptocurrency when used as an intermediate medium of exchange, and that no state supports cryptocurrency assets. The committee expects due diligence from banks that are going to work with cryptocurrencies. Banks should analyze possible risks and publicly demonstrate their cryptocurrency portfolio, as well as inform supervisory authorities about working with digital assets.
