Digital Asset AML/CFT Compliance

Treasury is seeking comments on issues raised by the President’s executive order (EO) on digital assets to guide further work curbing illicit-finance and national-security risks in this sector.  The request includes no policy discussion beyond introductory comments about the risks identified in Treasury’s reports, but the range of questions suggests openness to at least some industry-supported compliance and reporting systems that might facilitate adoption of at least some digital and virtual products.
