There is news in the field of regulation of Bitcoin, Blockchain and crypto-currencies – at least to a limited extent. Because in the 11. In March, the financial Committee of the German Federal government organized to create a hearing on an application of the FDP parliamentary group with the title "Future-proof framework for the Distributed Ledger technology in the financial market". The FDP parliamentary group, called for clear guidelines for dealing with Bitcoin and other crypto-currencies. Because Without regulation, one can exploit the Potential of the Blockchain technology is inadequate.

He [Eric Romba] took the view that Germany needed neither a DLT-special law, nor is it a DLT-law, but legal certainty. In tax terms, there is a great need.

Until it becomes such, the obvious fear, it will still take a while.
