posted 12 months ago
The Minister of Finance for the Netherlands, Wopke Hoekstra, wants to make the Netherlands position clear on cryptocurrencies, in the coming few weeks.

Hoekstra stated 'Our collective thoughts' go in the direction that it is desirable, but that requires a test. The same applies to the possibility of a ban, the minister said.

Some lower house parties demand measures against cryptocurrency and he hopes to be able to inform the House of the result of his findings, and test, in the next few weeks.

Hoekstra has issued a warning about Bitcoin: "Think before you start."
