The Brazilian tax regulator states that such measures have been taken because of the significant growth of the crypto industry within the country. As indicated by the RFB, the number of crypto exchange clients has dependably exceeded the number of users registered at the Brazilian stock exchange based in Sao Paulo.

The regulator’s draft is following a move by Brazilian banks to close some crypto-associated accounts, that prompted a probe launched by local antitrust agency CADE. The investigation was commenced at the request of the Brazilian Blockchain & Cryptocurrency Association (ABCB) following many complaints from crypto industry.

Later in October, the Federal District Court of Brazil compelled major banks Santander Brasil, and Banco do Brasil to reopen the accounts for local crypto exchange Bitcoin Max.
