Mapping Bitcoin's Legality Around The World

•, by Tyler Durden

Overnight reports from South Korea started it; European regulator comments extended it this morning and Shanghai "scrutiny" headlines just sparked another slam as cryptocurrencies are getting hammered today...

Given that fears that regulators might turn decisively against the cryptocurrency revolution have continued to plague valuations in the new year, it seems appropriate that decided to create this interactive map showing the various levels of legality that bitcoin enjoys around the world.

Green countries are legal Bitcoin markets. Orange represents neutral markets that are not outright legalizing Bitcoin, but do not have any major restrictions against the use of cryptocurrency. Light pink countries are restricted Bitcoin markets that may have lots of red-tape, regulations, and government attempts to slow the use of cryptocurrencies. Dark pink countries represent markets where Bitcoin has been made completely illegal and criminalized. Lastly, some countries have yet to comment on Bitcoin's legality, which are represented by gray color.
