What is cryptocurrency regulation?

Cryptocurrency regulation is the set of laws, rules, and regulations that govern the use and trade of digital or virtual currencies such as Bitcoin and Ethereum. These regulations can be implemented by governments and financial institutions to protect investors, prevent fraud, and ensure the stability and security of the cryptocurrency markets. Regulations vary from country to country, but many jurisdictions have begun to develop specific laws and regulations surrounding cryptocurrency. Some of the most common regulations include taxation, anti-money laundering (AML) measures, and know-your-customer (KYC) requirements.
