As Coindesk reports, France's finance minister is planning to push for a discussion on bitcoin regulation at a G-20 summit in 2018.
Citing French news network LCI, Reuters reported yesterday that Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire said in an interview that he will ask Argentina, which is set to take control of the G20 presidency, to put bitcoin on the agenda during an upcoming gathering in April.
Le Maire was quoted as saying:
"I am going to propose to the next G20 president, Argentina, that at the G20 summit in April we have a discussion all together on the question of bitcoin. There is evidently a risk of speculation. We need to consider and examine this and see how ... with all the other G20 members we can regulate bitcoin."
How that conversation will play out remains to be seen. Representatives from G-20 nations have previously discussed the topic through the Financial Stability Board (FSB), which has been studying the tech since 2016.
