LATEST: Taiwan Introduces Crypto Bill to Regulate Digital Assets, Focusing on Bitcoin’s Impact

Taiwan has initiated steps to regulate digital assets by presenting a crypto bill for its first reading in the Legislative Yuan. The Virtual Asset Management Ordinance Draft aims to define virtual assets, establish operational standards, ensure customer protection, and mandate industry association membership and regulatory permissions.

Stakeholders in Taiwan’s crypto industry are welcoming this formal regulatory development.
