Earlier, the New York State Department of Financial Services imposed rules that would require companies to separate their customers’ digital currency assets from their own assets.
The Ministry of Financial Services issued new rules that require state-regulated firms to disclose in detail how they calculate the value of their clients’ digital assets and currencies.--
The rules state that cryptocurrency exchanges will be subject to audits to determine whether or not they comply with US regulations on “know your customer” policies, anti-money laundering safeguards and capital requirements.-
During the announcement, New York State Department of Financial Services Superintendent Adrian Harris stated that it was time to start paying more attention to cryptocurrency companies, especially since this was part of the department’s future policy roadmap, even before the collapse of FTX.
It is noteworthy that Harris was a former senior advisor to the US Treasury, and took over the position of Superintendent General of the New York State Department of Services last year.
Harris spent most of her first year in this position nurturing the regulator’s interest in the cryptocurrency market, with approximately 50 employees working in the cryptocurrency arm so far.
