Due to the ever-changing nature of cryptocurrency technology, it has always been subject to regulatory amendments around the globe. The G20, a group of 20 developed economies, has opted for a unified approach to design a comprehensive crypto rule book to address this issue. 

In the G20 summit held in New Delhi, leaders from around the globe have agreed to establish a comprehensive crypto framework. In order to expand the digital assets transparency, the approved consensus declaration includes sharing of information between countries.

The consensus declaration signed by G20 leaders reads:

We call for the swift implementation of the Crypto-Asset Reporting Framework (CARF) and amendments to the CRS [Common Reporting Standard]. We ask the Global Forum on Transparency and Exchange of Information for Tax Purposes to identify an appropriate and coordinated timeline to commence exchanges by relevant jurisdictions,

G20 Mandates Sharing Of Transaction Details

The G20 presidency stepped up to endorse global coordination, including the Financial Stability Board (FSB), to supervise the digital crypto assets and stablecoins issuance. These implementations will bring crypto firms to operate under a common financial regulatory body like banks. 

Under the proposed regulatory framework, crypto firms will automatically share transaction details with jurisdictions annually. According to the report, this rule will take effect in 2027. Notably, it also covers the unregistered crypto platforms and wallet providers with their data revealed. 

The declaration document of G20 urges a swift implementation of the Crypto Asset Reporting Framework (CARF) and Common Reporting Standards (CRS), bringing global transparency regarding crypto exchanges for tax purposes. Also, the proposed rules will aid financial watchdogs in tracing illicit transactions to prevent money laundering and other financial crimes.

The CARF was first initiated to disclose valuable transaction details to tax authorities. The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) first introduced CARF in October 2022 for tax gathering purposes. 

Notably, the European Union already updated its crypto rule book in May to add CARF. Any transaction performed on the crypto platform must disclose the details among European countries with the user’s name, account number, and blockchain address.

G20 Presidency On Its Way To Develop Unified Regulations

Still, Central Bank governors and finance ministers of G20 nations will further negotiate the remaining proceedings in October 2023. The International Monetary Fund (IMF) and FSB will work together to pave the way for a global regulatory framework for the crypto industry.

Almost two-thirds of the world’s population is inhabited by G20 countries, so the framework will mainly affect countries including Australia, Argentina, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Turkey, the United Kingdom and the United States. South Korea, Saudi Arabia, Mexico, and the European Union are among other countries that belong in the same bracket.
