The European Union (EU) has approved new regulations that will give member states more power to freeze and confiscate cryptocurrency assets that are suspected of being involved in criminal activities. These rules, which still need final approval from EU institutions, will establish procedures for identifying, tracing, freezing, managing, and confiscating property and funds that are believed to be proceeds of crime, including assets transferred to third parties. One significant provision is the ability to seize property that is not clearly linked to a crime but is discovered during an investigation and is believed to be derived from criminal activities. Courts must be convinced that the assets originated from crimes committed by organized groups that generated economic benefit. The agreement aims to enhance tools against growing criminal threats related to cybercrime, money laundering, and illicit finance connected to cryptocurrencies. The EU Council will seek formal approval of the crypto regulation before it is adopted by the European Parliament, and member countries will have 18 months to implement the rules into national law if passed.
