What does the government’s representative say? The deputy minister noted that the government is still studying the possibility of issuing a national digital currency, but there are no immediate plans in this regard. He said that cryptocurrencies are very volatile and added:
"Digital assets are not recognized as legal tender in Malaysia. This is because they do not exhibit characteristics of money. Cryptocurrencies are also not backed by any assets. Nor do they have central issuers like banks or monetary authorities."
Does Malaysia plan to regulate cryptocurrencies? Currently, the country’s authorities have no plans to regulate cryptocurrencies, but neither do they encourage their use. It is not yet clear how the government will address the issue in the future, but at the moment it is not ready to accept digital currencies.
