Thursday, the Paraguayan Senate voted again to approve a bill that regulates the mining and trading of cryptocurrencies in the country. The Senate had already passed the bill in December. But the Chamber of Deputies changed it and passed it again in May. So, it needed the approval of the upper house. After being passed by both chambers, the measure must now be sent to the executive branch for approval or veto.

According to the main change proposed by the Chamber of Deputies and approved by the Senate, the Ministry of Industry and Commerce will be the primary law enforcement agency. It will punish anyone or any legal entity that uses cryptocurrency for mining or other services without the necessary permission.
