Skepticism towards the cryptocurrency market is not seemingly depleting as the United Kingdom’s top regulatory authority FCA issued a press release warning the public of potential losses investment in the crypto market can cause.
The FCA released a statement just after Bitcoin faced a significant fall in its value as after hitting an all-time high of $41,962, it dipped down to the low of $32,377.
In the statement, FCA alarmed the masses interested in investing in the crypto market of its volatility, complexity, and service charges. It suggested that investing in crypto is risky as the market does not offer and compensation schemes such as Financial ombudsman services (FOS) as it stated:
“As with all high-risk, speculative investments, consumers should make sure they understand what they’re investing in, the risks associated with investing, and any regulatory protections that apply.”
The FCA also asserted that any company linked to the crypto market must make sure that its operations comply with all the relevant regulatory guidelines and are authorized by FCA. Otherwise, the company would have to face legal action as FCA declared:
“Operating without a registration is a criminal offense”
