The German Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin) is planning a "case-by-case" case of ICO coins, while French financier Autorite des Marches, the country's main monetary monitor, has announced all crypto money transfers settled in cash subject to the same strict French state such as derivative laws and advertising bans. It was reported yesterday that the British Treasury Committee launched a crypto probe to investigate whether the technology behind Bitcoin poses a risk to central banking.
