"In a recent statement from the G7, finance ministers from the world's seven largest developed economies are looking to speed up regulatory scrutiny in the wake of the recent developments. Despite the ongoing market uncertainty, regulation will serve to strengthen trust and adoption of digital assets, enabling more retail investors to have confidence in entering and trading in the sector. Just as traditional finance has been around for a long time to finesse its regulatory frameworks, only time and opportunities for open discussions will provide a greater understanding of the future of finance and guardrails to protect investors," the research team at CoinDCX tells Gadgets 360.
