BaFin on Bitcoins - A Blueprint for Europe? - Bitcoin Magazine

In an oft overlooked statement German Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin) in December 2011 commented on Bitcoins. Although this statement directly concerns only Bitcoin businesses domiciled in Germany, one should be aware that BaFin is one of the most influential regulatory bodies in the EU. BaFin‘s statement could therefore be a blueprint for regulation in other European countries or EU regulation. Even if a particular Bitcoin business is not domiciled in Germany, it may be advisable for them to understand the BaFin statement and heed its possible consequences.
