Regulation of Cryptocurrency Around the World

This report, the Regulation of Cryptocurrency Around the World, surveys the legal and policy landscape surrounding cryptocurrencies around the world. The report covers 130 countries as well as some regional organizations that have issued laws or policies on the subject. Over the past four years, cryptocurrencies have become ubiquitous, prompting more national and regional authorities to grapple with their regulation. The resulting availability of a broader set of information regarding how various jurisdictions are handling the fast-growing cryptocurrency market makes it possible to identify emerging patterns, some of which are discussed in the report. The country surveys are also organized regionally to allow for region-specific comparisons.
