Crypto is a decentralized system. It's promotes privacy and gives you controll over your own money. No government should interfere with such privacy. Government doesn't need to control is unless it benefits them in addin g more coins to the pocket.

The rules and regulations will stifle innovation and will only slow things down for people and companies working in the space.
Criminals and baddies are not affected by regulations, because they ignore them.
Needing a license or similar is taking away the right do something and then selling it back to us. People who want to do bad things will do it regardless, and will skirt the rules or bend them.

There should be no more further government interference allowed in any form. This will enable more and more corruption.
Another way for our government to put there filthy greedy hands on our money
There is no proof that government can successfully manage the current financial system let alone add something more complex.

I can't see how this can be considered when there is no consequences to those that steal crypto currency,
Unless a system of checks and balances are put in place to stop criminals being able to spend their ill gotten crypto currency it should not be considered as legal tender .

it would be relatively easy to create and keep a ledger of all wallets involved with fraudulent acquisition of crypto and to refuse those wallets to spend crypto therefor technically voiding that wallet, and if criminals can't spend it, they would stop trying to steal/use/swindle it, and only then should crypto be considered a financial product.

In addition if you do not heed my warning then you should enforce culpability on companies handling crypto, like any other financial product of FIAT, if a company allows for the storage of crypto like a bank allows storage of fiat they must be held accountable if funds are swindled or stolen from their customers, (just like any bank) if they claim to be a safe place to store handle and exchange crypto they need to be taken to task and be held accountable.

Crypto assets should be clearly detailed as a financial instrument that allows inward flows from local investment products.

Due to its transparent and publicly available ledgers this does not present a threat to South Africa’s financial system if regulated correctly.
