UK Government has no plans to introduce age limit on investing in digital currencies
In line with policy on trading and investing more generally, the Government has no plans at this time to put an age limit on trading or investing in digital currencies, says Lord Bates.
As the pile of warnings regarding cryptocurrencies continues to rise, so does the number of questions that regulators face with respect to this market segment. The UK Government had to answer a question about age limits for trading cryptocurrencies.
On Monday, February 12, 2018, Lord Bates, answered that:
“In line with policy on trading and investing more generally, the Government has no plans at this time to put an age limit on trading or investing in digital currencies.”
He added that the Government recognises the significant benefits that digital currencies and the related technology could bring, as well as potential challenges. The Government is monitoring the situation, and believes any regulation should be proportionate and risk-based, he said.
In November last year, HM Revenue and Customs said it had no plans to permit to UK taxpayers to pay their taxes in digital currencies. Lord Bates has also provided some information regarding taxation for the digital currency sector and any potential reforms in this aspect. He explained that “gains made on digital currency are currently chargeable at the normal Capital Gains Tax rates, depending on the facts of the case”.
The information was provided shortly after Lord Bates clarified the stance of the UK Government on the possible regulation of digital currency businesses. On November 21, 2017, he said that the Government was negotiating amendments to the 4th Anti-Money Laundering Directive set to bring virtual currency exchange platforms and custodian wallet providers into the scope of Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorist Financing regulation. This will require such firms to conduct due diligence upon their customers, with their activities being overseen by national competent authorities for these areas, he added. The UK Government supports the intention behind these amendments.
Lord Bates noted that the stance of individual firms towards providers of digital currencies is a commercial decision for those firms, and it would not be appropriate for the UK Government to intervene.
In the meantime, warnings about the risks associated with cryptocurrencies have been on the rise. In September last year, the Financial Conduct Authority issued a consumer warning about the risks of Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs). And in November, the regulator issued a special warning about the risks stemming from cryptocurrency CFDs.
The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) has opened a consultation on proposed new rules for CFD and binary options offering, with the rules to cover CFDs on cryptocurrencies too.
ESMA is considering how CFDs on cryptocurrencies fit within the MiFID regulatory framework as financial instruments. The regulator is currently discussing whether CFDs on cryptocurrencies, whose underlying assets have displayed very high price variation, should be addressed in the measures and whether a 5:1 initial leverage would provide investors with sufficient protection. Alternatively, a lower leverage limit (2:1 or 1:1) or stricter measures (such as a prohibition on the marketing, distribution or sale of CFDs in cryptocurrencies to retail clients) could be considered.

SmartHoldem is a global decentralized gaming platform with a set of protocols to ensure gaming integrity and maintain anonymity of information, where all the net members do not need to trust each other or anyone. The platform is protected by a reliable distributed register with the advanced modified encryption technologies.
We intentionally created blockchain from the ground up to be develop a stable progressive BlockChain, thus eliminating the problems of Bitcoin and later systems and providing innovative additional native functions. At this moment no one public blockchain provides such technologies.
All process are implemented and regulated by the unique technology of the P2P nodes, public BlockChain, GameNet, deterministic SmartEvents algorithm and more advanced 2nd Delegate L Proof-of-Stake. Tickets for a tournament game, the random number generation, payment of prize money, affiliate programme, SuperNodes bonus as well as charge on the distributed network are carried out with the SmartEvents algorithm, without human intervention.
A new technology protocol, developed in the SmartHoldem Platform, SmartEvents is a heart of the system, guarantor, gaming arbiter and the betting bank. SmartEvents provides some other innovative functions related to events. Within the SmartEvents protocol, programming language is used, supporting the Turing construction with the functions required for the automated events performance.
2nd Delegate L Proof-of-Stake of SmartHoldem Platform in itself technically consists of two kinds of nodes:
Level A delegates – SmartHoldem participants, supporting the servers function, provide network functions and develop new blocks with transactions. It is necessary to install and set up special server. The number of the first level delegates at the start is limited to 64 persons. Any participant can become a delegate if he or she can win a sufficient number of votes. If a delegate does not do his job – stopped signing blocks, a new delegate being beyond a list of 64 participants, can take his place, in other words, delegates, waiting for own turn, maybe more and more. In effect, a network is supported by the qualitative servers, consisted of the delegates. Pure democracy model is run here.
Level B delegates – the special SmartHoldem nodes, responsible for distribution prize fund of the gameplays, obtained in poker game, for example. A winner can pick his money by deducting small rake percent. These commission fees are used to reward «mainers» for their supporting network. In order to become a level B delegate it is necessary to set up complete node, rather than a level A delegate, it is enough to have accessible in online mode computer, Raspberry PI also will serve, and there is need of minimal balance from 10. 000 and even more SmartHoldem coins. The more the second level being in operation, the better network stability is and less stock money on change. We do not forget about small token holders, for example, user who has 2. 000 coins on his own balance, can take the part in prize fund distribution from the gameplays, leased out his/her balance to the complete level B node.
