Antigua & Barbuda pass Digital Assets Business Bill 2020
On 18 June, Antigua and Barbuda formally added the Digital Assets Business Bill 2020 to its statutes books providing a new regulatory framework for stakeholders in the digital assets industry including businesses, clients, and customers. Antigua is quickly emerging as a global stakeholder for Bitcoin SV and other digital assets. The bill is expected to provide more trust and credibility to the sector. The Bayesian Group and Bitcoin Association advised the government on the legislation. The bill defines various types of digital assets beyond currency equivalents and it is expected that more real assets will be tokenised using blockchain technology in the future.
