New law to align Australia with Japanese and proposed EU legislations

The company is currently providing services to Coinify.com and Blockchain.info and is contracted to provide services to blockex.com / blockexmarkets.com, btcxe.com. and BuyCoinNow.com.

The proposed Australian bill will align Australia with Japanese legislation and the proposed EU legislation, and is expected to support the growth of the digital currency sector.

iSignthis Paydentity™ solution allows digital currencies to be integrated into the existing financial system, whilst meeting their AML regulatory requirements in the U.S., EU, Japan and shortly Australia.

Paydentity™ has a global reach of up to 62% of the world’s population, allowing for rapid KYC on-boarding of any ‘bank verified’ financially included person.

This capability could provide Australian digital currency exchanges with global reach and scale opportunities, in the context of meeting their regulatory compliance requirements.

The company’s processed payment transaction volumes associated with digital currency have grown by more than 250% between January 1st and June 30th 2017.
