BAFT members can now access the BAFT tracker of Government Authority Pronouncements on Innovation, Blockchain Technology, and Virtual Currencies. The BAFT Innovation Council created the tracker to inform its government advocacy efforts. The tracker provides a summary of each government action and pronouncement regarding FinTech innovation, blockchain technology, and virtual currency that is relevant to transaction banking. The resource covers legislation, regulation, guidance, reports, and speeches over recent years for five critical jurisdictions: the European Union, Hong Kong, Singapore, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

The tracker is accessible under the Innovation Reference Materials section of the Policy tab on BAFT's website, www.baft.org. Members must log in to access this tool. Information for Australia, Canada, China, Japan, and multinational organizations will be added to the resource in the coming months.
