Spanish speaking KYC/AML Specialist, LocalBitcoins

Alkuperäinen julkaisupäivä 20.2.2020
In July 2018, the European Commission brought into force the 5th Anti-Money Laundering Directive of the European Union, also known as 5AMLD, which for the first time takes into consideration digital assets. Finland is upgrading its AML and KYC laws in line with the EU (5AMLD) legislation. The 5AMLD stance on cryptocurrencies means that cryptocurrency exchanges are now considered “obliged entities" and must face the same requirements as financial institutions. These requirements include AML, customer due diligence, transaction monitoring and suspicious activity reports.
