EU cryptocurrency regulations have yet to be unified, but individual institutions like the European Central Bank and the central banks of separate governments have made different statements about the legal status of cryptocurrencies. The European Central Bank’s official position on cryptocurrency is a recommendation not to use them until the establishment of specific cryptocurrency laws for the EU. Cryptocurrencies are a subject of the EU’s anti-money laundering laws, so the EU cryptocurrency exchanges are obliged to identify users and track suspicious transactions. Certain countries in the European Union have their own cryptocurrency regulations. For example, Germany defines a cryptocurrency as a private currency/non-governmental currency. Also, the EU does not provide strict regulations on ICOs and different states have their own ways of handling them.
