  • The latest draft FATF guidance
  • Are Canadian businesses ready to implement the FATF guidance?
  • In the latest FATF draft guidance, NFTs that may possibly facilitate money laundering and terrorism funding activities will be considered VAs. Have we seen the use of NFTs in money laundering or other criminal behavior yet?
