Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman has said that issues related to crypto assets require immediate attention and the response of the G20 has to ensure that they do not lose any potential benefits while protecting economies from harm, according to a PTI report.

Sitharaman was part of a brainstorming session on 'Macrofinancial Implications of Crypto Assets' with G20 finance ministers and central bank governors at the IMF's headquarters. As per the report, the brainstorming session was attended by global experts on this issue. In her remarks, Sitharaman said the G20 acknowledges the work of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the Financial Stability Board (FSB) in bringing out key elements of policy and regulatory framework.

She also said a synthesis paper, which would integrate macroeconomic and regulatory perspectives of crypto assets, is required.
