"The meeting with ICCA ran with great enthusiasm, as it was dominated by the younger generation. I invited the ICCA to discuss protection for crypto consumers," Hasan noted on Friday.
He spoke of the Trade Ministry's plan to cooperate with relevant ministries and institutions to boost crypto trading literacy in Indonesia.
The Trade Ministry is a government institution closely related with the crypto asset industry. In Indonesia, crypto is officially recognized as an asset, so the entire industry and its regulations are directly controlled or supervised by the ministry.
