Digital currencies have not been made illegal by legislation in most jurisdictions. However, some jurisdictions severely restrict or ban foreign currencies. Other jurisdictions may limit the licensing of certain entities such as Bitcoin exchanges. Regulators from various jurisdictions are taking steps to provide indi- viduals and businesses with rules on how to integrate this new technology with the formal, regulated fi nancial system.
