Uganda’s FIA Requires Crypto Framework
The remarks by BAU’s Murunga come just some months after the nation’s Monetary Intelligence Authority (FIA) advised the nation’s Ministry of Finance to look into the opportunity of regulating cryptocurrency.

The FIA hoped to make use of the crypto business’s compliance with the voluntary registration coverage to bolster its personal capability to “defend customers and the bigger economic system” from the attainable misuse of cryptocurrencies.
Central Financial institution Prioritizing Implementation of Cost Service Supplier Tips
In the meantime, Murunga tells Bitcoin.com Information that whereas Ugandan authorities have seemingly acknowledged the FIA’s name, there has not been any notable motion on this entrance simply but. He defined:
“[The] Financial institution of Uganda continues to be centered on the implementation of the cost service supplier [PSP] tips and may’t be bothered with crypto for the time being.”
As prompt by Murunga, the central financial institution has up to now prioritized the implementation of PSP tips forward of making a crypto regulatory framework.
