Abstract

This paper reviews and contrasts the regulatory regime governing cryp-tocurrencies in Australia with those of the United States and European Union where the use of crypto-currencies in general and bitcoin in particular, is gaining momentum. This comparative analysis led the authors to conclude that the Australian regula-tory regimes are compara-ble, especially in relation to anti-money laundering activities. The finding cements the argument that it is timely to have a streamlined classification of bitcoin and/or cryp-tocurrencies across the jurisdictions, to provide the necessary guidance for all the stakeholders in the financial system.
