The Basel Committee on Banking Supervision has published a public consultation on preliminary proposals for the prudential treatment of banks' cryptoasset exposures. This document builds on the contents of the Committee's 2019 discussion paper and responses received from a broad range of stakeholders, as well as ongoing initiatives undertaken by the international community.

The Committee welcomes comments on all aspects of the preliminary proposals, including the questions in the consultative document. Comments on the proposals should be uploaded here by Friday 10 September 2021. All comments will be published on the website of the Bank for International Settlements unless a respondent specifically requests confidential treatment.
