The European Union’s Economic and Monetary Affairs Committee and the Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs Committee have removed the €1,000 limit for crypto payments from self-custodian wallets in their new anti-money laundering legislation.

This was part of the Anti-Money Laundering Regulation (AMLR), which was provisionally agreed by the European Council and Parliament in January.

Amendments have been made to the original proposal, including the removal of the limit and the requirement for self-custody wallets to undergo identity checks when receiving funds.

However, firms must continue to conduct identity checks for customer transactions over €1,000 through crypto asset service providers (CASPs) in the EU.
