Brazil’s lower house of Congress has passed a crypto bill granting restricted legitimate status to crypto payments and established an administrative framework for the industry.
Who Approves Crypto Bill
On Tuesday, Brazil’s Chamber of Deputies approved a bill to lay out an administrative system for the country’s crypto industry. The bill was recently approved by the Senate in April and was awaiting the decision of the Chamber of Deputies.
The bill has passed into law and only requires the signature of the President to be enacted. However, the most significant point of the law is that it grants legal status to crypto payments for goods and services without granting crypto the status of legal tender.
