Indonesia to Unveil National Crypto Exchange by June
Indonesia’s Trade Ministry has announced that the country plans to roll out its national crypto exchange by June this year. The initial plan was for the cryptocurrency bourse to be launched by the end of 2022. In December, lawmakers in the House of Representatives passed an omnibus law which provides regulatory oversight for crypto exchanges.
The government is currently reviewing digital asset exchanges with a view to joining them on the national exchange. From a list of 25, five active, registered exchanges have been identified.
