Government News

Led by people in various positions of power, governments create and enforce different laws and guidelines. Governments across the world vary significantly in terms of approach, procedures, laws, etc. Government news today often becomes public online — different in form from the newsstands of yesterday. 

Government cryptocurrency overwatch has increased over the years since Bitcoin’s launch in 2009. The U.S. government, in particular, has enforced a number of regulations in the crypto industry. Other governments have also taken various steps toward regulating the digital asset space. Additionally, talk of government-backed cryptocurrency, called central bank digital currency, or CBDC, has surfaced among government world news.
