How will the new system function? For Canadians who have sent more than $800, a recipient form will need to be filled out, which means providing their name and actual residential address.

For Singapore and Japan there will be no minimum threshold for transfers, the residents of these countries must report on each transaction. The users from Singapore will only be required to provide their name and country of residence. The Japanese investors must disclose the name, the full address as well as the name of the cryptocurrency exchange that manages the recipient’s wallet. Failure to fill out the form will not allow the transfer to take place.

It was previously reported that Coinbase will introduce a monthly subscription that will allow trading without fees. The exchange also began marking potentially dangerous tokens with a warning label.
