A total of 51 countries around the world have enforced a ban on the cryptocurrency industry, according to a report published by the Global Directory of Legal Research (or GLRD) of the Law Library of the US Congress.

The report was originally published in 2018, but has been updated with new findings.



“Although the 2018 report identified eight jurisdictions with absolute prohibition and 15 jurisdictions with implied prohibition, the November 2021 update identifies nine jurisdictions with absolute prohibition and 42 with implied prohibition,” according to the report.

Absolute ban refers to regions that have made cryptocurrencies illegal.

Implicit prohibitions refer to jurisdictions that prohibit banks or other financial institutions from dealing with cryptocurrencies or offering services to people or companies that involve cryptocurrencies.

They also refer to the implementation of bans on cryptocurrency brokers that cannot operate in the country.

Analyzing the bans

The Library of Congress report details nine countries that have banned cryptocurrencies altogether.

These countries are Algeria, Bangladesh, China, Egypt, Iraq, Morocco, Nepal, Qatar and Tunisia. Among them, China made the most headlines this year.

Since 2017, the Chinese government has banned trading in cryptocurrencies. However, this year, it reinforced its crackdown on cryptocurrency mining. This resulted in a major geopolitical shift from miners to other parts of the world.
