South Africa's Financial Sector Conduct Authority (FSCA) released a statement today that they intend to declare cryptoassets "financial products" in early 2021. The declaration would come under South Africa's Financial Advisory and Intermediary Services Act (FAIS). The FSCA did not state exactly when the declaration would come into effect, but the authority have invited interested members of the public to submit their comments to the office before 28 January 2021, indicating a likely declaration in late Q1 or early Q2 2021. Richard de Sousa (AltCoinTrader), Marius Reitz (Luno), and Farzam Ehsani (VALR)  gave us comment.

As reported here: https://globalcrypto.tv/south-africas-altcointrader-opposes-absa-in-court-interdict/ Global Crypto has learned of a developing David and Goliath scenario in the South African crypto industry, wherein crypto exchange AltCoinTrader appear to be taking on banking giant ABSA Bank in the country’s High Court. According to sources, AltCoinTrader were served with a notice from MyGate Communications (Pty) Ltd received by the exchange last week Tuesday 01 September 2020. The notice informed the exchange that their QR code payment gateway service would cease to serve AltCoinTrader with immediate effect. MyGate’s “Zapper” product is one of South Africa’s largest QR code payment gateway service providers, and according to our source, AltCoinTrader is among their top 5 clients by payment volume. Global Crypto reached out to the company’s CEO, Richard de Sousa who confirmed the information - this interview provides de Sousa's comments.

Graeme looks at how the US Dollar is strengthening significantly against emerging markets, leading us into chatting about various Forex trading practices. We see there isn't much movement on Bitcoin and the Alts, but that is likely because the volatility needs to cool down just a bit before the next "wind-up".  We also take a look at a tweet by famous Bitcoin early-adopter and entrepreneur Charlie Shrem, who sees some big institutional money.
