  • Carlos Antonio Rejala Helman, deputy of the Nation of Paraguay, announced through a message published via his Twitter account that he will finally present next week his bill, which aims to regulate Bitcoin and the main cryptocurrencies at the local level.

This was stated by Rejala in a message published a few hours ago through his account on the social network, which reads as follows

:

“I’m here to unite Paraguay, that’s why we decided with Senator @FSilvaFacetti [Fernando Silva Facetti] to present together the Bitcoin bill on Wednesday, July 14! Stay tuned as there will be a mega surprise for Paraguay and the world. Something GIANT is coming…”.

Rejala and the bill to regulate Bitcoin

The emphasis of Congressman Rejala to present a bill to regulate Bitcoin and the main cryptocurrencies in the country gained much notoriety because of what happened in El Salvador, a country in which President Nayib Bukele introduced before the Legislative Assembly a proposal to officialize Bitcoin

As such, Rejala has clarified on several occasions that his legislative proposal does not have the same objectives as the one promoted by Bukele in El Salvador, indicating that its focus is mostly directed towards the regulatory field, which will establish some principles for the approach of operations with Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies within the country.

In this regard, in an interview for Reuters news agency, Rejala commented:

“We want regulators and banks to also participate so that Paraguayans or foreigners can operate legally with these assets, because we know that there are illegal transactions here and in other countries. We want to be a cryptocurrency-friendly country.”
