At the close of 2014, at the start of November, HM Treasury, the UK government’s financial body, opened a public consultation (call for information) on digital currencies period to last until December the 3rd (2014). Asking a broad set of questions to be answered by the public, individuals, businesses, or any other interested parties. They sought to gain a better understanding of the Cryptocurrency sector, as George Osborne, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, (who recently brought bitcoin), had tasked them with gaining more information to formulate a clearer picture of how the UK government should react to the emerging sector.
