The minister continued, gezegde:

Regulation could be an enabler of a stable, flourishing cryptocurrency exchange in the City of London.

in het bijzonder, the minister acknowledged that the current level of cryptocurrency trading and related activities isnot posing any significant risk to the UK economy.
