Crypto ban: African countries where crypto is restricted or illegal

Since its inception in 2009, Bitcoin, as well as the numerous cryptocurrencies that followed, has been fraught with controversy.

The legal position of the digital currency differs significantly from nation to country because to its high volatility, its usage in criminal operations, and the excessive expenditure of power to mine it. However, as more Africans use cryptos, the objections have intensified, resulting in a slew of new limits on their use.

Some nations have outright outlawed Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, while others have set restrictions on how they may be used.
