On what terms will the bank list the cryptocurrency? The minimum purchase price of the asset will be $15. The bank will collect transaction tax under the Israeli Tax Authority so that “customers will not need to manage tax complexities.”

What is going on in Israel? Earlier, the Binance exchange temporarily suspended operations in the country at the request of the regulator. Also, Israel’s Central Bank has published a draft corresponding to the anti-money laundering (AML) regulations.
