    FinCEN drops ‘midnight rule’ regulating private crypto wallets

    U.S. Treasury Department’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network issued a proposal requiring exchanges to collect personal data from self-hosted wallets

    Essentially, what FinCEN wants is to require banks, cryptocurrency exchanges, and other money services businesses (MSB) to collect identifying data about anyone who wants to transfer $3,000 or more to or from an “unhosted” wallet.
