"Some of Europe's largest digital-coin brokers, who would be saddled with the new rules, are actually asking for them in a bid to clear the air and shake off perceptions they help criminals transfer money." - Todd White, Bloomberg, May 7, 2018. Here is the article.
Shrewdly, the big players around the world are getting in front of such a development. They're the ones advocating regulations for themselves. For example, as White notes, London's eToro recommends "know your customer" rules. That would prevent money laundering through cryptocurrency.
This internal push for transparency represents a standard public relations strategy: Do onto yourself what others would impose on you. That demonstrates a willingness to cooperate and behave in the public interest.
