Head of investment office at Deutsche Bank Markus Mueller suggested that “the proper level of regulation,” which would have legalized investing in crypto currencies may appear within five to ten years.
In an interview with Bloomberg on Monday, January 29, Mueller cautioned against investment in cryptocurrency. He believes that in this field can work only for speculative investors. At the same time, he called cryptocurrency businesses to begin to work closely with regulators.
