Australia’s Northern Territory Is Considering Crypto Gambling Regulation

The Northern Territory of Australia is considering crypto gambling regulation as it seeks to incorporate crypto wagering into the regulated gambling sector.

To implement the aforementioned crypto wagering, the Northern Territory Racing Commission (NTRC) in Australia is collaborating with its gaming licensees on a preliminary proposal.

Wagering in Australia is primarily administered at the state level as opposed to the federal level. The National Racing Commission (NTRC) regulates all gaming and wagering organizations registered inside the North East (NT), including international betting companies such as Betfair, Entain Group, Sportsbetting, and Issues are widely.

Currently, the NTRC must have divvied up a confidential document to licensees in order to solicit their opinions and feedback on the regulatory environment required to launch crypto wagering in the NT. Consequently, the Northern Half of Canada is considering crypto wagering legislation.

Julian Hoskins, the principal of Senet, Australia’s leading gaming legal and regulatory advice firm, was granted access to the confidential document and revealed what the NTRC is seeking at this stage:

“It stipulates that a licensee, such as a sports bookmaker with a license in the Northern Territory, who wishes to accept cryptocurrencies for wagering or wage payments must apply for permission to do so. And there are some conditions attached to that.”

“Now it’s clear from the draft framework that what they’re interested in is cryptocurrency wagering, not fiat exchange,” he added.

AustraliaDespite

the difficulty of predicting the likelihood of such a change at this time, Hoskins remarked that, given the popularity of cryptocurrencies, he would expect this to be a popular alternative to fiat currency. He believes that it has the potential to be of great importance.

If this strategy proves successful in the Northern Territory, he noted that other state casino authorities will likely adopt it.

In order to comply with anti-money-laundering (AML) legislation, Hoskins suggests implementing stringent identification procedures. As a result, players will almost certainly be required to verify their crypto wallet addresses, and winnings must be withdrawn “back to the same wallet” that made the initial deposit.

“Under the proposed framework, they will require a verification of the crypto wallet. Therefore, it must be validated and registered with the customer’s identity. And the customer must demonstrate control over the wallet,” he said.

“Under the proposed framework, they will require a verification of the crypto wallet. Therefore, it must be validated and registered with the customer’s identity. And the customer must demonstrate control over the wallet,” he said.

Hoskins added that the NTRC has proposed monthly crypto deposit limits of $2,000 AUD for the first twelve months, with a maximum monthly wager of $5,000 AUD.

As is customary in fiat-based gambling, local gaming enterprises would be legally required to have crypto wallets with sufficient assets to adequately collateralize consumer wager amounts, according to the attorney for the gambling industry.

Hoskins stated that he did not know “how it would be regarded” in terms of the tax implications of gambling with volatile crypto assets, implying that the NTRC is currently debating such issues.

Recently, the newly elected Australian Labor Party (ALP) revealed its approach to crypto regulation.
