Crypto Industry News:
Rishi Sunak has become the new leader of the Conservative Party in Great Britain. This means that he will also head the British government. This may have an impact on the cryptocurrency policy of the Albion government.
Rishi Sunak will replace Liza Truss, who has headed the British government for just over a month, as Prime Minister. Sunak himself competed with her for the office of head of government immediately after Boris Johnson’s resignation. It didn’t work then. He won 60,399 votes, while Truss 81,326. Now, however, this former finance minister is taking power in the party and thus in the country.
Sunak was elected leader by members of the Conservative Party on Monday. Truss was forced to resign after her plan to fight the crisis proved impossible to implement.
While serving as Finance Minister in Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s government, Sunak announced that he wanted to turn the UK into a cryptocurrency hub. He helped prepare, among others The Financial Services and Markets Act, which, if enacted, could give local regulators broad power over the cryptocurrency industry – starting with the inclusion of asset-linked cryptocurrencies such as stablecoins within the scope of the payment market regulations. Under his leadership, the Royal Mint was entrusted with the task of creating the NFT collection, which, however, is yet to be realized.
