Denying Basic Banking Is Madness – Senate Bill 213 Might Make Utah Crypto FriendlyMarch 6, 2019
The Times of Malta recently reported that despite the government supporting cryptocurrency and the blockchain companies based in Malta, they are being denied banking services.
Silvio Schembri, parliamentary secretary to the financial services in Malta, stated that some banks are willing to provide Banking services to blockchain companies, but they are hesitant when it comes to dealing with cryptocurrency companies. Other banks do not even differentiate between cryptocurrency and blockchain.
Banks expect the cryptocurrency operators to get an MFSA – Malta Financial Services Authority license, which is very understandable.
This is also true with the largest banks being too careful about providing any service to their cryptocurrency operators.
Ben Sebley stated that “Denying basic banking is madness, which in turn impedes the growth of the sector forcing companies to get creative to solve the problem.” He further stated that “The banks are being overly prudent.”
Global economies are educated about cryptocurrency, and a trend towards mass adoption is a possibility.

For most of the beginners, cryptocurrency trading is pretty cryptic. They are not sure of the trading techniques. Just like any investment speculation the factors of responsible trading come in to play. While all these are at play in the different cryptocurrency zones, the UTAH lawmakers have sponsored a Bill that will exclude the cryptocurrency transactions from the money transmission laws. Senate Bill 213 might make UTAH a crypto friendly destination very soon. Different states in the US are similarly coming up with their own Virtual Currency and Blockchain Technology Laws.
