Belgium to Restrict All Transactions with Bitcoin


Jan 11, 2017
The Belgian Minister of Justice has proposed to confiscate all cryptocurrencies in circulation and start regulating all transactions with digital currencies. This might mark the end of free use of digital currencies in Belgium.

Koen Geens, the Minister of Justice of Belgium, believes that cryptocurrencies are used by terrorists, criminals, and drug dealers, and thus companies dealing with cryptocurrencies should be under strict control of the government and courts.
