“The risk oriented approach does not mean that jars must go near all carrying out such activity clients identically. We expect instead, that jars acknowledge that the risk related to the different business operations in one category can be varied, and will properly manage these risks”.
Thus, a regulator offered the row of “good” measures, that jars must accept for minimization risks from clients, using cryptocurrencies in “criminal aims”. FCA called jars to promote the awareness the employees in the field crypto assets, to understand nature of business clients that work with them, and it is correct to define risks that arise up here.
