Later Mr. Hasler stated that the bill called “The Blockchain Act,” will present an appropriate and light-handed regulatory framework. He has mentioned:
“There is no point in creating regulations that are excessive and lacking in practical relevance, because then the blockchain economy will simply develop outside the regulations. That surely would not be in the interest of any country. Therefore we want to propose a sensible regulatory approach by means of this law, where the role of the state in creating legal certainty and confidence comes into effect where it is needed.”
The bill will be generally improved by Financial Market Supervisory Authority of the country. The organization has already addressed more than 100 Blockchain and cryptocurrency related issues.
