Brazilian government judges have been gearing up on crypto-related matters, trying to set up the legal executive for an expansion in crypto-related legal disputes.
At a meeting of the government passing judgment held last week, which was organized by the country’s equity service, judges were told to focus more on crimes related to the crypto market and an expansion of irregularities related to the crypto.
