What does Al Jawhari say? Despite Moroccans’ interest in cryptocurrencies, the central bank governor believes that their adoption is only possible if there is a regulatory framework in place.

What has already been done to regulate digital assets? The Bank Al-Maghrib has established a council to oversee the necessary regulations for both cryptocurrencies and CBDCs. The council was created in February 2021. Its purpose is to study the implications for Morocco should the decision to switch to cryptocurrencies be made.
