The cryptocurrency market is double the size of the sub-prime debt market in the U.S. on the eve of the financial crisis—and it poses a threat unless urgently regulated, according to the Bank of England (BOE).

Crypto assets are now worth $2.3 trillion, about 200 percent more than at the start of the year. While that’s still a small portion of the $250 trillion global financial system, it’s about twice the size of the $1.2 trillion sub-prime real estate debt market in 2008.
