“FCA believes that these products are not suitable for retail consumers because of the damage they bring with them,” the FCA official report says. The prohibition would save £ 53 million ($ 68.6 million) a year.

FCA highlighted the inadequate understanding of crypto assets by retail consumers, the extreme volatility of the price dynamics for them, the difficulties with their reliable assessment, as well as the prevalence of financial crimes in the secondary market of crypto assets.
