Reducing the cryptocurrency family to commodities or securities will cause problems. “Understanding the issue correctly, making a different category and moving forward on those regulations will be the most important step.

($ 1.7 trillion). Sometimes it can generate a lot of profits and sometimes a lot of losses. This is one of the most important reasons for volatility, ”he said.
