Blog: Taiwan financial regulator says will oversee cryptocurrencies – The Economic Times

Taiwan’s Financial Supervisory Commission will be the main overseer of cryptocurrencies on the island, the head of the regulator said on Monday.

Huang Tien-mu told lawmakers in parliament that the Financial Supervisory Commission will initially be responsible for the supervision of payments and transactions, but will not cover NFTs, or “non-fungible tokens”.

Huang said he will discuss the details with other government departments as well as “self-discipline norms” with relevant industries.

Details will be announced after consultations with the cabinet, he added.
