G20 President India on Saturday asked the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and Financial Stability Board (FSB) to come up with a joint technical paper on the macroeconomic and regulatory perspectives of crypto assets.

This proposal by the host country came at a panel discussion on the regulation of crypto assets, as part of the G20 meeting of Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors (FMCBG).

“This would help in the formulation of a co-ordinated and comprehensive policy approach to crypto assets. The international organisations are expected to present their joint paper during the 4th FMCBG meeting in October 2023,” said an official statement.
