The coordination between the European Union's financial supervisors has "increased tremendously" and will continue to do so thanks to new crypto regulatory framework, said European Banking Authority’s Chair Jose Manuel Campa.
Campa made the remarks while addressing the European Parliament’s Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs.
