There are two reasons for the amendment: to comply with the national action plan to improve the efficiency of prevention of money laundering and financing of terrorism, and the forthcoming adoption of the euro, finance minister Marko Primorac told a weekly cabinet meeting as seen in a video posted on the government's website.

Besides, providers of services related to virtual assets will have to register with a registry to be set up by the financial services regulator Hanfa, Primorac added.

The Adriatic country of 3.9 million people will join the eurozone as its 20th member as of the beginning of the next year.
