Singapore considers tightening cryptocurrency trading by retail investors

As stated by Singapore’s central bank chief, the city-state is considering new measures that will make it more difficult for retail investors to trade cryptocurrencies at a time when retail investors seem to be “irrationally oblivious” to the risks involved. According to Reuters, Ravi Menon, managing director of the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS), said that adding frictions to consumers’ access to cryptocurrencies is something the authority is considering at a seminar on Monday.
