Major Headlines


Ireland Potentially Following EU Lead


In July of this year the EU established updated Anti-Money Laundering regulations in response to cryptocurrencies and digital assets. The changes came after a great deal of research and input from industry professionals in technology and the financial sector, and call for stricter KYC information from exchanges and wallet providers. The changes are then free to applied within EU member countries, and Ireland is just a few steps away from adoption. The primary change is for onboarding new customers. No anonymous safety deposit boxes or anonymous cryptocurrency wallets would be permissible. “The reality is that money laundering is a crime that helps serious criminals and terrorists to function, destroying lives in the process… Criminals seek to exploit the EU’s open borders and EU-wide measures are vital for that reason. Ireland strongly supports the provisions in the fifth EU money laundering directive.” - Minister of Justice Charlie Flanagan


$24 Billion Processed By Circle
