The last months the cryptocurrency exchanges of Chile combated banks concerning illegal closing of their accounts. In April the Chilean court on protection of free competition (TDLC – Tribunal de Defensa de la Libre Competencia) has disposed that three banks have again opened accounts of the cryptocurrency exchanges. In May Banco Estado has followed the instruction and has resumed service of Cryptomkt.
Earlier this month the Fourth chamber of Court of Appeal of Santiago has passed the decision in favor of the cryptocurrency exchange Orionx which had legal proceedings with Banco Estado concerning closing of her accounts. Problems of regulation of cryptocurrencies haven’t escaped heads of the Central Bank of the country. In May the managing director of the Central bank of Chile Mario Marcel has expressed the need of cryptocurrency regulation.
