Notification of Originator and Beneficiary Information upon Crypto Assets Transfer (i.e. the travel rule)
Amended in June 2019, the FATF Standards require the member jurisdictions to introduce and implement a regulation to obtain information of the originator and beneficiary associated with the transfer of crypto assets, and to give notice of such information to the VASP used by the beneficiary, i.e. the so-called travel rule.
In light of this, the Financial Services Agency (FSA) has issued the attached request to the Japan Virtual and Crypto assets Exchange Association (JVCEA).
Please see the following document for more details.
