Lawmakers in Japan have decided to enforce stricter Anti-Money Laundering (AML) measures to trace cryptocurrency transactions from June 1.On May 23, the Japanese parliament made the decision to roll out tougher AML procedures from next month, according to a report the same day from local media outlet Kyodo News.The move aims to bring Japan’s legal framework in line with global crypto regulations.Lawmakers revised the AML legislation in December after it was deemed insufficient by the international financial watchdog, the Financial Action Task Force (FATF).According to reports, a vital feature of the new measures is the enforcement of the “Travel Rule” to keep a more accurate track of criminal proceeds.The travel rule requires any financial institution processing a crypto transfer greater than $3,000 to pass on customer information to the recipient exchange or institution.
