Egypt Might Issue Its Own Cryptocurrency

A well-informed source in the Central Bank of Egypt told Al-Monitor (a popular online Middle Eastern news portal ) that CBE (Central Bank of Egypt) is currently studying the effects of cryptocurrencies and ways to regulate it. The source said that CBE might issue it’s own cryptocurrency in the near future.

If this turned out to be true, Egypt will be the fourth country in Middle East to issue its own official cryptocurrency. Earlier this year, Saudi Arabia and UAE announced that both countries will be implementing a new cross border payment system using cryptocurrency. The Turkish government revealed its upcoming plans to adapt blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies.

Last month, the Central Bank of Egypt announced that it is working on a draft law for cryptocurrency related activities and banned creating, promoting or operating platforms for issuing or trading encrypted currency or cryptocurrency without obtaining the necessary licenses in advance.
