Customer Assets to Be Safeguarded

The published guidelines require cryptocurrency platforms in Taiwan to keep and safeguard the assets of companies and customers separately. They also mandate setting review standards for the listing and delisting of virtual assets and strengthening disclosure of information.

“Engaging in transactions involving virtual assets or virtual asset businesses with features similar to securities in derivative financial products is not allowed.”
A Safer Crypto Sector Ahead

Finally, the published guidelines also note that foreign virtual asset platform operators not registered in Taiwan and not compliant with Anti-Money Laundering regulations will not be allowed to operate in Taiwan and target Taiwanese citizens.
